Oh, if only we didn't need pesky little ongoing necessities like food, rent/mortgage, clothes, etc.! Then we could all kiss the workforce goodbye and live a life of leisure like the 1% do.
But huzzah! There is one day of the year which recognizes the invaluable contributions of labour to our economic system, whether people comprehend the true nature of that system or not.
And this is not the day to be snarky or holier-than-thou about anyone else's occupation or profession -- we're all in the same boat when it comes to trading our life energy for money.
And above all else, make work and your job your priority!
Like this prime example of Worker of the Year --
Stifle those doubt-filled, non-conformist impulses!
It won't take a toll on you over the years!
Work-life balance? Fuhgeddaboutit!
Your boss knows best!
Try to get along with everyone, fer gawd's sake.
And always remember . . . .
There now, doesn't that make you feel better about work?
