“A total of 38% of workers admitted that they would prefer for a colleague to lose their job than to have their own pay packet reduced.”

I’ve always maintained that nothing like an office environment and culture stir those killing feelings in a person and this article just confirms it.

If you want to give up your true self and join a band of gossipy, nasty creatures, whose main job consists of pretending to be working then don your suit and march down to an office near you .

Life will never be the same again.

The article goes on to say that “the ruthless approach of a large proportion of employees highlights how money is the main motivating factor in the workplace for many people.”

Ha! And we needed a study to find this out.

Who on earth would anyone want to spend their days trapped between four walls with people with no life ready to stab each other in the back at the first available opportunity?

There’s better be a good reason for that and since money really makes the world go round and keepa a roof over our head and food in our stomach, well, yes, that motive enough, wouldn’t you say?

Workers’ ruthless streak revealed – Telegraph.
