There is no I in teamwork.

I had a dark yet funny thought about the phrase “There is no I in TEAMWORK” today.  This is a phrase managers love to bandy around as a motivator for their employees, which is not necessarily a bad thing unless, like me, you come from the retail world.  I decided that I wanted to create a corresponding phase for all the workers who are asked to do more and more work to achieve the same compensation.

While yes “There is no I in TEAMWORK”,” There is also no TEAM in BONUS” .  In most of retail, the guy at the bottom only gets a paycheck and, like me, many have not seen that increase for several years now.  In addition, ask those that lost their jobs in the banking industry while upper management still got their bonuses if “There is a Team in Bonus”?  Think about it.
