La Famiglia

One thing that drives me nuts is the constant chatter I hear about people trying to strike a balance between family and work life. For me, I don't see there being any need to strike a balance. The workplace is the home, and the company is the family. The boss is the patriarch who oversees the family. When you can look at things from this point of view, the conflict between home and work disappears.

This is the reason why companies need to hire either foreigners or single (unmarried) workers. Workers who are single don't have a home life to worry about, so they can devote themselves to working and advancing your company. Foreign workers tend to be willing to sacrifice most things--family included--to get ahead. I particularly like hiring the foreigners from poor, yet educated countries. They work hard, work long hours, and are usually a lot cheaper to pay than domestically trained workers.
