Refreshing Perspectives Work

Today's workday started with a group discussion about how good we have it here in the U.S. compared to workplace standards 100 years ago & communist countries now. One person in the group having left family in communist Vietnam. Interesting, refreshing and highly unusual start to the morning. :) Normally the say starts with people whining about have to actually DO work. Paperwork/computer work, in an air conditioned office, with established break times and paid vacation, and Wii consoles in the breakroom, and ergonomic specialists to make sure you've got the right equipment. It was nice to be reminded that some people here are truly thankful, grateful and appreciative of the jobs that we have.
