Your Corporate Job Using You Up?
you dread getting up to face
another day at work? You're
not alone. In fact, you may
well be in the majority. Corporate
burnout is becoming so widespread
throughout the US and other
countries that people travel
the country giving seminars
on how to handle job burnout
and make workers feel less stressed.
Of course, you've probably heard
the drill-"Learn to work
smarter, not harder"...
"Be a team player"...
"It came down from the
the end this will help us reach
our goals and we'll get fat
Of course, the
goals set for many corporate employees
are so unrealistic that the bonuses
they hold out for never materialize.
Perhaps you hit 8 out of 9 targets,
but sorry, you don't get the prize
because you didn't hit that last,
totally impossible ninth one.
Sometimes it feels like you're
working in some sort of absurd
carnival sideshow. It's no wonder
you don't feel very committed
to a corporation that treats you
like a slave. How can you feel
loyal when there's so little appreciation?
The unrelenting stress of a high-pressure
job can lead to numerous health
problems as well- hypertension,
heart attacks, backaches, anxiety,
headaches, depression, and even
addiction to drugs or alcohol,
either as a way to try to stay
energized and "up" to
complete excessive workloads,
or as a self-medicating attempt
to relax when you finally have
some time for yourself.
To add to the
stress, stories of layoffs by
major corporations are announced
In 2006, 1,500,000 workers were
pink-slipped in mass layoffs ("mass"
meaning more than 50 employees
at a time). Rumors circulate constantly
about what the top management
is doing now, what changes are
in the wind. Companies are "reorganizing."
or selling out to another company.
Or they've gone bankrupt-only
to reappear overseas, employing
workers for a tiny percentage
of their American counterparts'

Average, everyday workers like
you are the ones who bear the
brunt of these kinds of changes.
CEO's and other top executives
just keep rolling in the dough-even
those at companies you wouldn't
think of as "blue chip."
For example, in 2005, the annual
pay package of Dollar General's
CEO, David Perdue, was $3,314,901
(as reported by The Corporate
Library). An American worker earning
an average salary would have to
work until the year 2135 to
t Perdue makes in
one year. But frankly, this guy
is small-time. The average total
compensation for a CEO of a Standard
& Poor's 500 company in 2005
four times what Perdue made, and
a 16% raise over the year before.
Did you get a 16% raise recently?
Like many of
your co-workers, you probably
feel angry, undervalued, underpaid,
and exhausted when you think about
stories like these. Few salaried
employees in corporate America
work a traditional 40-hour week.
Many put in 50, 60, even 70 hours
to meet the demands of their superiors.
Hourly workers are cut off at
40 hours or less so the company
can avoid paying overtime-and
you know who takes up the slack.
(Meanwhile, those hourly workers
may have to work an additional
job-at straight-time pay, of course.)
culture" that has developed
in our society extends into the
corporate world as well. ("It's
fault we have to work
so late. If only she'd do her
job like I do!") Feelings
of competition and worries about
favoritism increase feelings of
anger and powerlessness.
There is a way NOT to let all
these other people control your
life and hold power over your
economic survival and lifestyle.
You can take control of your own
life by becoming your own boss.
Ironically, as you've become more
and more disenchanted with your
corporate job, you have also been
learning what kind of job you
need to be happy.
