Why You Hate Work


Fifth Estate # 275, August, 1976

NEW YORK (LNS)—A Colorado University Professor thinks he has discovered the real reason millions of Americans hate their job.

Professor Eugene Koprowski, who is also an industrial consultant on employee relations, said these attitudes are the result of permissive parents and television. Both lead children to expect “immediate gratification” he said, and when they don’t get it on the job as adults, they become dissatisfied. The result is that many workers do as little as possible while at work.

“These people feel absolutely no guilt about not earning their wages honestly,” says Koprowski. “They feel that they’re in fact the ones being cheated.”
