Work time is for work

Work time is for work

The question that should be asked is this: Why are employees allowed to do anything other than work-related tasks on their company computers?

The recent World Cup soccer matches were watched by millions of people who should have been working. Solitaire, Texas hold 'em and Internet shopping are now considered acceptable.

Work is work. Give your employer what he hired you to do. The amount we, as consumers, pay for wasted time must be staggering.

This is a prime example of the terrible work ethic we have in the United States. Doing your job right gives you a sense of accomplishment, no matter what the job is.
