psa: your co-workers who have been there for longer and don't work as fast as you aren't ""lazy,"" they're exhausted. they were in your position once too, and felt like they had to put in all their energy ito the job -- and they burnt out. you should learn from them, and slow down now. take rest breaks and coffee breaks, let things take a little longer; your reward for extra speed will only ever be more assignments, inevitably grinding you down. your exploitative employer isn't worth it.

slacking off is praxis. getting paid to sit on your phone and drink coffee is praxis.

@jacethechicken this is why I teach my robotics students the importance of time theft

@jacethechicken find excuses to both walk AND sit down! Rest and exercise are both crucial to your mental health.

@jacethechicken seeing a lot of this shit on my fb TL and I’m sad that my family and friends can’t see how brainwashed they are.

Never do work you aren’t being paid to do.

@jacethechicken The thing about it that kills me is how it hijacks a communal work ethic for the benefit of the ownership class. "We're all in this together." Homie we are fucking NOT.

@sweetmercury @jacethechicken What if I like to do the job I am not getting paid specifically for? E.g., I once worked as a dev, and we were given a task "put the button on this page". My cw approved the page that was half-baked, and the button was in a shitty place. I didn't like the layout and tried to fix it. For me, it was an interesting job and I enjoyed doing it in the time, that was allocated for the first mentioned task. My cw said it was not his job, and he is not getting paid for that.
