Many people spend their days at jobs they dislike and often cannot enjoy the things they work so hard to pay for. Should Monday be so dreadful? Can we have a society where people don’t complain about or hate their jobs? Surely there’s the argument that we have to work in order to provide for our families and to survive. But is this survival really living? Our work lives very much represent who we are. The livelihood should be something integral to life rather than the thing that sucks out life. Everyone should feel they have a purpose at work, and it should be something they care for. Good for the employees because they’ll be happier. Good for the business because employees will be more productive.
