Problems at the workplace

1. "in my company, junior employees often work more than 60 hours a week. If the boss is in the office, we feel we hav to stay until he leaves. Very, often, we are not paid for working overtime, we wok for free. And for many of us, the summer holiday is only a one-week vaction. We work a lot of overtime, but we aren't more productive. We just have more health problems"

2. "Our company changes all the time, and every month some employees lose their job. We are very worried about losing our jobs. It's very stressful. We love our company, but sometimes we lose our motivation, We don't come to work on time, or we leave early. We are not happy at work, and not very happy at home. It's a difficult situation for our families too.

3. "There is so much waste in our company! The air conditioning is on, and people open the windows.The cafeteria is empty, but all the lights are on.People photocopy everything, and the wastepaper baskets are full of copies nobody wants. It's a waste of money for the company, and it;s bad for the environment. We all need to try and do our bit to protect our environment."
