Months ago, they were giving $100 to people who got vaccinated, as an incentive, when vaccination rates dropped.<SNIP>I’m vaccinated. I was before the mandate. The fact is you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Forcing people into it has caused a countrywide backlash that didn’t have to happen. You think I don’t want people to get vaccinated to save their lives? <SNIP>
but unknowingly giving someone aids is ok?If you knowingly give someone aids, that's illegal. Also I can't give you aids by breathing on you. You need to consent to have sex with me. I can't consent to breath air that you do
France, one of the most anti vax countries in Europe, is now highly vaccinated because of “le nudge.” If you want to go to a cafe or restaurant, you have to have proof of vaccination, and you know how the French love to talk and socialize, so it worked without official vaccination mandates. And the French have a love and respect of bureaucracy that is bizarre. Whole books have been written by brits and Americans about simply trying to rent an apartment in France.Mandates work. Screw this idea of paying people to get vaccinated.
This canard is wildly off-topic, but the simple answer is that there isn't one.wheres the mandate for the aids vaccine?
Given the less than banner success that was leaning on business to enforce mask and social-distancing mandates in my region alongside the mess that is proof of vaccination, I do not foresee such a program being very successful in the 'States.France, one of the most anti vax countries in Europe, is now highly vaccinated because of “le nudge.” If you want to go to a cafe or restaurant, you have to have proof of vaccination, and you know how the French love to talk and socialize, so it worked without official vaccination mandates.
Working for a major telecom, there's been chatter from the C-Suite about a partial mandate for field personnel - some of our customers are insisting that only vaccinated field technicians be allowed on their premises. I expect leadership is secretly hoping that the pandemic dies down before their hand is forced one way or the other - the issue will be testy and be rather difficult to administer.
My take on all this is whatever skill sets boomers may bring in terms of experience or seeing problems in advance, they are sorely lacking in some areas. The most glaring one is their seeming dismissal of remote working. Jamie Dimon of Chase exemplifies this with his "return to the office or else" edict but he's far from the only one. His generation just can't see any other way of operating or managing. When "managing" consists of walking through the office several times a day breathing down your employee's necks, then of course the concept of remote work seems alien. Even though the work got done fine in most cases, they're telling employees basically we want you back in the office because we want you there. Of course, that's being met with lots of resistance. So the retirement of a lot of boomer managers will be a boon to younger workers. Good luck selling the idea of coming into an office to sit at a computer to a millennial or Gen Z who grew up doing everything from their phones or PCs.In one sense a change was felt because of the lack of the skill set the boomer had where his wisdom and experience allowed him to seemingly see around blind corners. But productivity is up since his replacement is able to perform in ways the boomer either did not want to or couldn't.
That would have freaked me out, too, sort of like portending I might die on the job soon just like my watch.My former boss said he was on the fence to stay or retire until the day the battery died on his wrist watch. He said that was the day he decided to retire.
No reason they can't socialize on their time off. I get the isolation part but by the same token by avoiding a commute you're literally getting back 10 to 20 hours of your life a week. That gives you more time to make friends and socialize outside of work hours.I question how long the work from home will last from a mental standpoint. Most people are simply not cut out to be alone all day for years after years.
I genuinely miss the comradery of the office, the greater ease of collaborating in person, and the random moments of serendipity - all generally absent from WFH life. I don't miss the daily commute sinking 60-90 minutes of time every single day when I've always been capable of working remote.I question how long the work from home will last from a mental standpoint.

Locally my employer let their lease expire on half of the building I used to work out of, will let the lease expire on the other half of that building in another ~2 years, and relinquished a third of another building I used to work out of. There's a new facility being negotiated (which chatter has placed in a swankier part of town than the company has traditionally occupied) as a hub for the hybrid model I mentioned previously.Companies with lots of office employees still heat and cool the facility they often lease or own. I remember going to my office and the only voice I heard was my own echoing off the rear wall.
