Office workers on average waste about 1.86 hours each day while in the office doing non work activities. Now include normal breaks cigarette breaks, water cooler breaks and toilet breaks that should leave about one and a half hours of real work. This could save global warming just have them come in for 2 hours a day with a 15 min break and turn of the AC.

Office workers, engineers, designers, technologists, blue-collars, secretaries, minimum wage earners & the poor, give rich people much more than rich people deserve. Rich people treat employees much worse than deserved.
