Honesty in the workplace?

A paperclip here, a stamp there, most people would never dream of robbing a bank, but don’t even hesitate when taking small things like these from their employers.  Some are even willing to adjust their time card, adding minutes they didn’t work.  After all what’s fifteen minutes here, or thirty there, as long as we don’t get caught it’s okay, right?

No, it’s not okay, and it’s one of the biggest lies society spouts today.  The rampant lack of honesty and “Can I get away with it?” attitude in this country is part of the reason we are spiraling down the economic toilet.  If the seven-billion people on this earth each stole just one ten-cent paperclip from their job, seven-hundred-million dollars in revenue is lost.  Hmm…I wonder how many jobs could be created with that kind of money?

Inscribe in your hearts the motto, “An honest day’s wage for an honest day’s work.”  Live by it and teach it to the rising generation.  If we are going to save this great nation, both employer and employee must revert to the core values that made this country “great” in the first place.

    I agree. I see people defrauding insurance companies with the excuse that they can afford it. Think what the world would be like if everyone was honest.
