Seattle Times letters to the editor

June 19, 2013 at 7:30 PM

Majority of Americans disengaged at work

Lack of loyalty goes both ways

I am not surprised at the low number of people who are truly engaged with their work. [“Most hate their jobs, check out mentally at work,” Business, June 19.]

There is nearly no loyalty from companies for their employees. The larger the company, the less the loyalty. Profits are shared only with those at the top, while everyone else has seen their purchasing power diminished.

Under these conditions, it is not surprising that many people hate to go to work.

John Porter, Kirkland
