It could be worse. You could be expected to work 7:00 am to 5:00 pm in the office, then take your laptop home and do more work in the evenings and on weekends. Oh, we already do that. Never mind.

My wife had successfully avoided being required to use a company Blackberry for years, but a new manager has now saddled her with one. Now, she's 24/7, but getting paid for 8/5. It's what companies are doing to get more value out of their workers, even as the government contiues eroding their profits through increased regulations and higher taxes.

Well, the company profits and the government comes out ahead -- that's two out of three! :-D

You don't have to say a word; I know what you what you want to ask me.

You want to know whether I write this column by pounding a keyboard in a soulless office cubical, or I'm pounding back brewskis in my man cave, tucked comfortably in my Barcolounger Brougham with the built-in armrest cooler.

Home or office, I'm not going to tell you, but I do understand why you ask. You just learned that the Internet colossus that is Yahoo has decided to reel in all those workers who had previously been allowed to work at home...
