Over the last decade or so, major corporations are starting to function and behave more and more like religious cults in the way they treat their employees, demanding extravagant displays of devotion and ever more subsuming commitment. Yet at the same time, the American worker has not been more disempowered since the second world war. This week, in the light of the Walmart strikes I have been writing about the phenomenon for the Huff Po. I would love it if you would click on the link, have a look and ideally leave me a comment over there on the site, Facebook like it or tweet it. Thank you so much!
