    What we get instead is a hollow catharsis for a nation already strung out on the futility of resenting those who occupy CEO suites.

    How condescending! And what happens in the end. The workers get a "taskforce" and the boss goes back to his millions a year because he forgot How condescending! And what happens in the end. The workers get a "taskforce" and the boss goes back to his millions a year because he forgot that working is hard. So contrived I couldn't believe it. Odd that not a single one of the workers he was strategically placed with was terrible at their job. Also, shouldn't you be working instead of talking to neighbors all day? What kind of policy will you implement to let me socialize whenever I want? Full Review »

    although its a good show its fully scripted.

    So lets start which guy is going to the job for the first day with the whole camera crew and then (TO ALL EPISODES they seat down with the manager and they talked about their DIFFICULTIES in personal life ?which manager will talk about personal life with a TRAINEE average worker? does that sound like a reality for you? and at the end the boss ALWAYS rewards those managers who had difficulties and they always promoted them.

    what kind of average employee goes around to the whole areas of the company to work with the whole camera crew? in business YOU DONT get to choose where to work, u get a job in the area/major that there is a need for an extra worker.

    its the same procedure and scripted of the show and they follow it all over the time. even the managers and the whole staff they know it that its scripted.
