    There's a happy medium to all of this. Some Directors and Managers are overly aggressive about employees being late, sick, not staying late and the like. On the other hand, there are many employees who take unfair advantage of decent managers and use "their rights" as some sort of excuse for not working very much at all.
    Many people would agree that a significant number of young Britons approach work with an attitude that says "you must pay me but, having to work for it is optional".
    Our education system, and its increasing lack of discipline, does not adequately prepare many of our young people for the workplace. Too few seem to have been instilled with a sense of obligation to the employer, however, many seem to have been well drilled in their "human rights" - which they are often wrong about - and brainwashed into being "activists" against just about anything and everything with very little being offered in the way of coherent solutions.
