“Anybody who’s ever worked in a very repetitive, menial job will recognise this suspicious atmosphere – the less enjoyable a job is, the more people there are who suspect you of trying to get out of it. That’s reasonable, I suppose, though if people were treated less like robots to begin with, they might not need so much surveillance. But the fabled “innovation” of the private sector never seems to be able to extend itself towards making jobs more self-determining and satisfying. Presumably this is because there’s always a danger that self-determining, satisfied people might distinguish themselves in some way, might cease to be interchangeable and might want – indeed, deserve – more than the paltry wage they might be being paid.”
