It's not until those who feel they've been bossed around become bosses that they understand the great divide in points of view. Those doing the paying and those receiving the pay have different mental models for seeing the world.
That's why the media such as the New York Post have such fun with all the variations of the theme "take this job and shove it." Here is the latest from the Post. The "shares" on that might have been amazing among the workers of the world.
However, finding common ground is not impossible. And that can lead to a deep sense of satisfaction for both. A few seasons ago on "The Good Wife," Alicia candidly asked Diane, co-founder of the law firm, how she could keep her job. Diane was just as candid, telling Alicia to use her connections through husband Peter to bring business into the firm. That's what Alicia did. She kept her job. The firm got a big new account.
With so many obstacles against employers and employees in the 21st century, it seems an anachronism to maintain the Marxian dichotomy of boss/bossed. A reality show is needed which demonstrates how smart people don't fall for them. They figure out where the common ground is and the rest is a big success story.
