New Data Challenge Employer Survey Indicating Futility of “Working” Saturdays


Okay, so we’re back from our most recent extended holiday – and angry! Around the time we disappeared a survey was published indicating the futility of forcing employees to work on the Saturdays officially used in Hungary as “replacement” days for weekdays converted into official holidays so everyone can enjoy a long weekend. According to the findings, most managers don’t see the point of even bothering, since staffers either fail to turn up, or leave early after doing jack shit. Apparently this year there are a record five such “workday Saturdays,” and last Saturday was one of them. We know this because at least one group of employees was, as usual, hard at work: The people who are usually not handing out parking tickets on Saturdays. Fuck.
