Many lower-paid workers can’t take advantage of California's family leave, even though money for the program gets taken from their paychecks.
Thought the same, how does this effect those organisations where you hot-bed from one different work station to another each day? All academic as we'll all be working from home and in another lockdown in about 4-6 weeks time.Yes and maintaining the same square footage you were leasing before with desks for hybrid work plus sanitation plus I want somewhere to stow my knick knacks plus I don't want to sit at a shared station using infected keyboards, mice, phone, etc plus I don't want to commit coming in X, Y and Z day because flexibility means I only come in once a month when the team goes to lunch....
That makes a hell of a lot sense for the corporation.
every frito lay board member should be shot
is this a long winded way of saying you're going to boycott frito lay products and support the workers in their struggle?7x12hrs is a tough game. Plenty of people do it, but generally not for an extended period, other than junior doctors. The Japanese have in the last decade had a revolution in working hours and ditched their excessive hours.
Productivity does suffer after the initial surge of 12hr days. A production line might extend it, but ultimately productivity will be reduced as everyone gets over tired.
I worked for much of my twenties, 7 days a week. Sometimes 12hrs for extended periods like 3-6 months, but mainly Monday-Thursday 10hrs 8am-6pm, Friday 8am-1:30pm, Saturday 8am-to noon and Sunday 8am-3.30pm. And that was expected and other than your holidays, you had to work it. When I started working normal hours with weekends off, it was pretty amazing that extra time for R&R.
It's a awhile since I've done a dedicated Health & Safety audit, but the photos reveal trip hazards, access and egress obstructions of particular concern as Lays management state they do have problems with fire, there's over stacked boxes near a conveyor system which have a number of near miss type scenarios, bare wire another near miss.And pictures of time sheets I obtained make clear that the company is pushing workers to the brinkeoinhiggins.substack.com
Pimpernel Smith you want to work through this???

The issue with 12 hour working needs some Kaizen methodology applied. Why is the work process so inefficient and intensive that people have to work 12 hours 7 days a week for several months at a time? Plenty of industries do work 12 hour work shifts and the general patterns are 4 days on 4 days off, 2 weeks on 2 weeks off, a month on and month off. That's ultimately doable, but sustained month in month out with no rest it's too much and it cannot be productive. I know of no factory production line that works 12 hours shifts, it's three 8 hour shifts over the 24 hours. Mining was/or is the same.
All the research I know of, show that an increase of work to 12 hours, creates an initial increase in productivity, but after a very short time the productively lags and goes down. Ultimately it's good for a very short burst only. Something is wrong in that factory hence they're on strike.

At this point it's only inertia holding us back from changing the nine-to-five, five days a week program. Its time to consider other options. Wouldn’t it be more humane to offer schedules that fit their employees’ needs and wants?www.forbes.com
Depends on the business. Global businesses: organisations operating through several time zones, make 9-5 redundant and people need to be available outside of those hours and the luxury of a 4 day week.At this point it's only inertia holding us back from changing the nine-to-five, five days a week program.
