13. it provides an example

and in the real world, you know factories are typically trying to increase production. That's why they often have the mandatory overtime or the mandatory 9 hour days.

Producing more with the same equipment and the same personhours reduces costs.

The point is, we can both win. If they pay better and they treat better, then they get rewarded with more production.

And there are many employers who are not businesses. For the last eleven years I have worked for the taxpayers. My "bosses" also work for the taxpayers. So what do they gain from treating me like crap, other than some sick personal satisfaction?
