Microsoft's new 'Productivity Score' lets your boss track how much you use email, Teams, and even whether you turn your camera on during meetings

Microsoft this month launched an analytics tool for employers called “Productivity Score.” The tool collects detailed data about how employees are…

That is probably the most idiotic thing to come up with from Microsoft, surpassing even Windows ME.

This is exactly what I predicted in the first place that prompt me to start my own company.

Imagine one day, you have a crappy office provided computer crashed and your productivity score goes down without any fault of your own and then you get sequentially fired for “low performance review.” This is just more ammo for Manager to fire somebody he/she disliked even if the guy under that manager is cool with you having that job.

I’ll guarantee you one thing, this tool will be systematically be used against people with disability, end of discussion.

Do not forget pregnant women, anyone who ever falls ill and takes a leave, one who refuse to work overtime, do extra favours for corporation more than is regulated… the list is long.

It raises question on how as a society is supposed to address this problem systematically with discrimination and unjust firing. We can’t exactly have a jury for every single firing case though that would be nice, but we can’t exactly be ok with the current status quos where employers are just as exploitative as a slave owner now with this tool.

After watching this video on Worker Co-op. This led me to thinking about how corporation should no longer be privately owned or be publicly traded, but instead must be owned by the worker co-op at that scale, no exception. (We’ll still have publicly traded small businesses and privately owned one as well, just not for medium-large business scale, because that s*** affect too many people.) Worker co-op would more likely vote for amendable managers and bosses to manage the company rather than being solely driven by profit for the shareholders and would more than likely to have inertia for given local economy so it wouldn’t throw everyone in that local economy into poverty while looking for someone to do the work for less wage.

You are advocating socialism, and that is a no-no in a country like America, or any imperialist colonial country. Horrible stuff, how dare you advocate the social good of workers?!? Serve the 1% to pay bills and let the system suck your blood.

Just a lot of bitter memory of discrimination about that one person in particular. I corrected the post to have it more gender neutral.
