Working 21hours a week

employment, insurance, mental breakdown, overwork, work

I’m working from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm everyday from Monday to Friday… and that’s 9 hours a day or 45 hours a week.
But if you read this statement from a UK’s left-wing think tank the New Economics Foundation… “working week should be cut to 21 hours to help boost the economy and improve quality of life”…

WOW… that’s like working 4 hours and 12 minutes only a day from Monday to Friday!!!

The foundation claimed in its report that the reduction in working hours would help ease unemployment and overwork… cool… less people will get stressed-out or gets nervous breakdown… but too bad to those selling mechanical breakdown insurance 😛

The foundation is aware that by reducing the working hours people would earn less, but said they would have more time to carry out worthy tasks. They would have better scope to look after their children or other dependants, there would be more opportunity for civic duties, and older people could even delay retirement, the foundation said.

Well, I’m ready for that… but wonder when it will be implemented here… 😛


RM1 billion junks?

blackout, employment, life

The government said, they have spent RM1 billion… or USD$300 million… to improve the electricity supply in the state… but yet the blackout is getting worse day by day.

Then, they blame the generators… old generator sets which are inefficient and costly to maintain… 😛 who purchase the generators in the first place?

Now they are proposing to use gas or coal power generation plants… the coal power plant proposal was heavily objected by many parties… even me don’t agree with it… coz we have so much oil and gas dug in the state… we are one of the biggest oil producer in the country!!!… we don’t have coal mine here!!!

Solutions using gas for the power plants are more feasible coz we have the gas supply on hand… and soon an oil and gas processing plant at Kimanis… or was it just an oil and gas terminal???… damm… are we being short-hand again?… is being build and will be completed soon…

If oil and gas processing plant is build instead of just oil and gas terminal, thousands of our people in the state will get employment… when more people employed, there will be less jobless people in the state… then the economic will improve… and with the power plant… stable power supply… more investor will come here to build their factory etc… etc… etc… 😛
