One thing that seems to get mentioned in these type of articles is the “…and there’s lots of young people that want our job” thing and that leads to fear and insecurity and leads to working longer hours to make sure your job is safe. But in reality, once you’ve been with a company for a while and you have the run of their engine and know how things work, how many companies are going to say you only worked 2 hours unpaid overtime last week, I think we’ll hire a newbie to replace you and thus lose all the training that they’ve given to you and have to train in the next guy. I just find that ideology hard to take at times and its always heads / management that are saying it….bah!
