STL 54 - Unions and Unsustainable Ideology

Episode 54 - Unions and Unsustainable Ideology

The Client, New O'Neal Commercial and Industrial Hyperdynamics and Lotion Innovations, requests assistance with unionisation issues and general employee loyalty issues.

Management Consultants' advice: recontextualise definition of terms; unions are stupid; learn to love the boot; unions eat your legs; hats of nitiation; unions give you wrinkles; eat the boot; initiate ‘funchat'; hold ‘funchat’ in the backup airlock.

Content Warning for:

  • Emotional Abuse
  • Bullying / Taunting
  • Alcoholism & alcohol consumption
  • Discussions of worker oppression
  • Mentions of: mild innuendo, violence, mass mortality, death & death threats, cannibalism (implied), blood, guns, existential crisis.
