If You Think Your Job Sucks...

The blue sign on the floor also says "Lets rush - if we don't then the company and world will perish."

Via the Stranger, Gizmodo and Danny Choo, if you think your job sucks...

The management at Canon Electronics in Japan had removed all the chairs from their employees office and installed hallway motion sensors so that if their employees move slower than 3.6 seconds per 6 meters, an alarm would go off. It's like a scene from a sci-fi movie about the future where everyone is brainwashed.

The reasoning behind it is that the employees will have closer relationships with each other when they are forced to stay on their feet and they will be more alert during meetings. Apparently, the Japanese don't believe in unions or any employee rights.

It seems like the management would do anything to make their employees behave more like robots. I'm sure people will boycott Canon products because of this kind of mistreatment and mind-fuck. No wonder the suicide rate in Japan is so high.
