Seriously, should it?
I watched a Panorama episode recently on BBC 1 about the conditions of working at Amazon which you can see here if you wish:
But that's just the catalyst for this thought and whether or not you think the video used biased evidence and that such work is necessary and not too bad is irrelevant to my point and I've posted my perspective there anyhow, which has been around in my mind for a while.
Basically I see far too many of a our jobs, services and...well way of life as being at the behest of each others lack of patience and demanding natures. This seems to have a knock on effect, ever rumbling down the line from person to person. Essentially it trivialises and demeans people at the bottom end of workplaces and services. In fact even those higher up often find themselves enslaved to their own systems of commerce and trade as they demand and are demanded of again and again....and it is always easier and more financially viable in the short term to be complacent to others demanding natures, than to ask them to be more patient and considerate.
If one person purchases something from a service, then the service has to provide that something, but then of course the person who bought it could be demanding that their service be provided on time, perhaps because THEY themselves find their time being demanded of in itself. Then the provider of the service is then forced to put pressure on it's workers to provide quicker lest they find themselves negatively impacted in some way.
It might even be the more obvious situation that the service provider itself is demanding more speed to make money faster.
I know this is not a new point....one of issues of greed and selfish demand. But knowing about it doesn't necessarily present a solution, especially if people become indifferent and accept such mentalities as a given.
But how would you go about changing this issue? Would it be better to try to educate people slowly but surely on the subject and introduce evidence to the health risks and damage this causes for all involved? Is it just a facet of human nature and thus will always be there?
The only services I see as obviously needing some pressure in terms of speed is of course those of health and safety. For example a dying heart isn't demanding of it's own will after all.
Maybe I am just a naive child, but this has always seemed intrinsically bad for human beings to me.
