Millennials are wasting a 1/3 of their day in laying in bed. We spoke to industry experts about how this generation habit is impacting productivity.

Nightly quit-hibernation is time theft from your employer.

They’re killing the furniture industry! Their habit for laying in bed is reducing the demand for things like dining room chairs, recliners, couches, and sofas.

Don’t forget the most comfortable of all furniture; the cheapest office chair your boss could buy in volume!

Millennials attempting to kill the food industry by buying less of it. Economists baffled.

Your comment reminds me of that time The Wall Street Journal unironically told people to save money by skipping breakfast.

Sigh I grew up poor. Only got food at dinner. My family didn’t qualify for free school lunch. Learned not to eat as often. Was a change when my SO wanted 3 whole meals a day.

They’re already blaming Millennials for killing the real estate industry by not buying enough houses.

This is why I would never emigrate to Mars, because the corpo-tyranny would charge for air.

Nar. On Earth we’ll ‘only’ struggle to grow enough food, due to large previously productive parts of the world becoming unusable. We’ll still be able to breathe.

Long run, Earth will be fine. It survived worse than us. We may not survive us however.

Company monopoly on air is an element of Total Recall (1990). Great Movie.

If we follow the logic of “doing your job” = “quiet quitting” then you need to call it “quiet suffocating”.

Life in the Crimson Corporation is typical: there are good times, when benefit packages and bonuses improve and bad times, when the corporation has to lay off some employees. Only, if one is out of job, one is out of luck. Since everything on Druuge worlds is Corporation property, every ex-employee is instantly trespassing and guilty of stealing corporation property, like air and sunlight. The only suitable punishment in Druuge laws for that is to feed the Furnace. Retired ex-employees are, however, allowed to breathe Corporation air (albeit at decreased rates).

if quiet quitting is “doing your job”, then wouldn’t having a normal lunch break be “quiet starving”?

I write this as I am quietly constipated.

I’m kidding, this is the loudest shit I’ve had in weeks. The acoustics in here are fantastic.

“Experts warn: Getting a living wage is bad for the economy”

Yes, the same “experts” that crashed the economy through fraud in 2008.

I’ll never get over the fact that the people ruining the world economy, pushing millions/billions into poverty and thus being indrectly responsible for health issues and even deaths of countless people, got severance payments of 100+ million dollars…
