Who does their job in America?

You still do your job MiM? I outsourced mine to an "undocumented worker". The work still gets done and I have 2/3 of my wage. Works so well I might even get a second job.

TheDrifter- I sympathize with you, I do. I hate outsourcing, because greedy bastards want to give somebody a job for a fraction of the wages, at the expense of people here. I was just annoyed that they were making a generalization that no Americans do work, as if all are lazy. But I agree with you.

No, he realized I wasn't serious and didn't actually outsource my job. However, unsavory hiring practices have driven down wages in my industry by almost a third in the last 5 years.

Or maybe the OP is such a douche, and forces/command staff in a bad way. Even if im the boss, I wouldn't want my douchebag manager to handle my staff. And the OP just want sympathy, so he just posted that he just want people to do their job. Or maybe I'm wrong. Just my two cents.

I am willing to bet that this particular phrase was not a direct quote and the OP is just butthurt over the real reason the boss gave.

80, Agree completely. Theres more to being in a managerial position than forcing people to do their job. I definitely read this as you're a ball buster who is so focused on productivity that your methods will cause the exact opposite effect - the kind who will reprimand you for taking three seconds to scratch your ass while working. The result is an unhappy workplace and a decline in productivity, and they clearly care about more than just raw numbers.

the slackers are being promoted because of connections; if you're best friends with the boss, you are more likely to be able to do less work and still be promoted than the others.

Why would you suggest that? I don't know about you, but I like to contribute to society. Mainly repairing computers and various other electronics. Maybe our economy would improve if less people started thinking, "it's okay to not work hard because my boss doesn't care."

I'm totally with you on that #9. I love hard work & I love to do it well. Sadly my boss punishes me for doing a good job and rewards people for socializing instead. I cannot believe how many of my coworkers fall for that & do less and less real work. I'm a high school teacher.

I enjoy working hard also as much as I can with school, my summer job, and after school activities (I'm only in high school). But maybe his higher ups are not promoting him because they are actually frightened of him getting their job. I didn't mean start sitting there like mushroom all day, but rather OP stop apparently being as good as a worker when his manager is near. Then, maybe he could get a higher pay and better position and snap whatever business into shape. PS. He wouldn't lose his job over my suggestion especially if the reason he's not getting a higher position is because he would be good at it. So everyone can just stop jumping down my throat now. Peace.

No one ever thought that maybe she just wanted to find an excuse for not promoting him and gave him that lame reason to go away or something?

Yeah, that sounds like way too long for that conversation. Perhaps OP's boss really felt like playing Charades just then. Or maybe she's an Ent.
