Corporate mentality
Blue skies nightmare
What's your vision?
Compete against your workmates
Control, threat, menace
Don't look over your shoulder
Frightened to speak out
Race to the bottom
Conditions of service?
Zero hours contracts
Divide and rule
Union's a swear word
De-humanise the workforce
Low morale, unhappiness, low self-esteem
Keep your head down
Fear, mistrust, bullying
And the sinister misuse of the English language
