A scheme that allows you to set your own work
ing hours (within predefined limits), as long as you work the requisite number of hours, e.g. you can work from 11 to 7 instead of 9 to 5
, or miss half a day on Monday but make it up by working extra hours for the remaining four days of the week.
Hence, a device which allows workers the freedom to waste
vast chunks of their lives at times convenient to them.
