When Survival is Not a Motivator

Can it be possible to have adult humans that are not born defective but can not do simple tasks good enough to survive? The other day in a big box store an employee took more time, times their wage to prepare an item at the cost it sold for. Business can not survive with this type of employee and the employee is not doing the things they need to do to survive. In a system that motivates people with rewards a positive cash flow is required or it runs down like a watch that has not been wound up.


I asked myself if this was a deliberate act to end the job as the person seemed to just be going through the motions and not wanting to improve. It was like a child playing at being stupid to get out of doing work. Are welfare recipients forced to go to jobs? Has TV reduced people to poorly trained animals? What happened to the pride of earning your survival?
