Productivity Oh Productivity

Productivity ought to mean achieving more in an hour of work, but all too often it has come to mean extracting more for an hour of pay. [...] managers dream of attaining new productivity levels through the simple mechanism of unpaid overtime. They divide whatever work is done in a week by forty hours, not by the eighty or ninety hours that the worker actually put in. That's not exactly productivity — it's more like fraud — but it's the state of the art for many American managers. (from Peopleware)
