workers shut in coffins

When the pressure mounts, increase the pressure:
South Korea has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, and workers often report feeling stressed. So in order to make people appreciate life, some companies are making employees take part in their own pretend funerals.
Strange to note that when management comes up with such nostrums, it is seldom if ever that they consider revising the circumstances that afflict the worker....

Sorta like "terrorism:" Don't examine the causes, just mow down the results.

  1. Given that Singapore has the lowest homicide rates in Asia, in fact Japan is one rung behind us, it is also partly the reason why I have three DVD games from the National Library Board, you probably find the game titles more enigmatic than me: "Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45", "Tank Offensive: Western Front 1940-45", "Men of War".
