Workoholics Anonymous

Instead of AA, this is WA, and the focus is to get compulsive workers to chill out and take it easy. Apparently working long hours is now some kind of disease which requires a 12 step process to cure. In the 1800s, immigrants who worked incessantly were rewarded for their tireless work effort by moving up the socio-economic latter. Now, when people work incredibly hard, they are babied by support groups.

If you read the article, I think the main problem with these people is a lack of good financial sense. Either they are volunteering their time or they are sneaking into work and not telling people. These are the types of actions that waste valuable time and doesn't add any 0's.
