No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little. Edmund BurkeA Burke quote was used in a comment in Holly's thread, and I remembered the name of an old TV show that was on late at night when I was on the coast a while back, hence the title. I like the thumbnail philosophy, it makes everything seem black and white (like a 1963 cop show?)
My case is kind of like Holly's, wanting to help, but having no available avenue. Then digging into the situation and finding deeper problems.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
If the blog is squashed by a lawsuit, does that really reassure the public? All it shows is that a large corporation can step on an individual.
There actually have been positive changes, merit raises coming back, bonuses(!!!?), and the like. Would that have happened without outside influence?
Would you like to know what I would really like to have happen?
A sliding ceiling for pay(based on inflation)--so that you can have a
possiblility of a cost-of-living raise, no matter if you're topped out.
A suggestion review committee comprised of staff and administration...50/50.
An inscentive program for the suggestions. If it saves money, a percentage goes to the person that suggested the idea.
More PRN staff hired. There is a slight hike in overhead, but it would allow the phase down the agency and temp personnel.
Maybe that ought to be on the next survey.....
