Why I as an atheist I don’t support Secular lawmaking?

Ashton Deroy writes: It was Karl Marx who said, “Religion is the people’s opium.” I kind of had thought Secular lawmaking would be the future of modern Canadian Politics. However, there are definitely more than a few reasons for pause & reflection. Atheists have dominated the governance of a country before, it resulted in the annihilation of multi-culturalism, religious genocide & brutal Tyranny. It is called Communism! 

In Canada, Quebec passed a secular law called known as Bill 21. Before this had been executed, Secular lawmaking had been one of those things I thought could revolutionize the way we look at governance. “Oh yeah”, it is revolutionary but for all the wrong reasons.” Religious oppression, cultural oppression & uniformity.  

I realize with an approach of secular lawmaking, tyranny is inevitable. You can see it in these Communist Countries when the people stop worshipping their faiths, it creates a vacuum and the state fills that vacuum unexpectedly with Nationalism & state worship. You see this in Joseph Stalin’s 5-year plan of atheism from 1932 to 1937 in Soviet Russia. This lead to religious oppression, re-education, and imprisonment to people who held on firmly to their beliefs.  One might argue with religion in a Nation we add a moral check & balance that we otherwise would not have. 

Cultural oppression, in my own words I have said over & over again. You can not treat Uniformity as diversity. I started saying it in my last Hinduja Global Services blog where I said they make a gross negligent attempt to treat all their workers as a uniformed resource and not as people with individual needs who need to exist outside of the system. If that isn’t right in a company, you can bet it is all wrong for a country! Canada is a Pluralist country meaning if we all start looking the same in any kind of capacity. We are doing something very wrong as outlined by our Charter of Human Rights & Freedoms. This does include religious expression and I am fully against the oppression of these rights as someone who loves the charter & thanks it for my ability to exist outside of the marginalized areas of society. 

The last part is about uniformity. Now I want to stop talking as a political commentary here and start talking like someone with an appreciation of arts & culture. Religion has inspired clothing & art . It makes our society reflect not just our relentless logical atheists but also the imaginative artists, Christian Philosophers & even our Sihk allies. The problem is this war on religion is also apart of the war on Families & their culture I had previously discussed. Forced uniformity is also a key part of our current Mental Health  Emergency I believe all of North America should be collaborating on. We have stripped away our traditions, identities, & beliefs as practicality! Yet we wonder why we are all miserable? In Belleville I heard a man at Tim Hortons say people in Turbans should not be allowed to vote. It gave me a feeling of such intense anger! This is not Canada and say that racist statement is not Canadian! 

At the end of the day, Bill 21 in Quebec is a form of cultural destruction. Quebec has created a national identity and has decided that people in certain professions have no choice but to participate. I believe the fact that Secularism is a big part of Communism should not be so carefully glossed over. It should give us pause & we should question if this is a gradual step in the direction of somewhere we do not want to go. Atheism as enforced by the law kills culture. 

Outsourcing & offshoring is poor design.

Change is coming and it is Democratic economic manipulation. To be exact.

Trade-off principal organizing – If we don’t go in from the outside. The company higher the wage from the inside. We will leverage this for a living wage. We will leverage this for privileges. Each of us will decide if the company can make us individually happy, if not you email Ashtonderoy@gmail.com and we anonymously blow whistles strategically.

We are organizing:

  • The workers
  • The ex-workers
  • The never to work there – You are missing out on some good people with moderate self-respect. What a waste right?

Call center conversations are happening around the world. It is affecting our politics, it is affecting the culture of our communities and making us all equally miserable. That is misery we have all equally shared. Let’s hold a vote, Democrats. Let’s do some Social decency reform if you are interested. I have some ideas. There is no you vs me. There is only a manifesting Democratic unity.

How much efficiency companies cost us?

Like Ashton Deroy on Facebook

Define efficiency company– Toxic efficiency is achieved when companies’ interests are prioritized much too high over community and Sustainability interests.

Here is how we get our answer? This is more speculative than anything right now but I would genuinely like a number. Here is how we get it. We add up the cost of the social assistance received by the employees’ post-call center employment. We add that up for the duration they receive the assistance.

Not just talk, eventually, we are going to get reports. Conversations are going to be had. We are going to continue to be informed and this will be dealt with. You see what I think Socialists? I think this is another version of the Wal-Mart Food stamp problem in the U.S.A. I think we have jobs that worsen social wellbeing rather than improve for the sake of the utility of the community.

Still, think a Conservative is going to balance the budget & economy humanely? Give me a break!

Here is an idea:

  • Give employees time to adjust to work culture.
  • Allow for mistakes
  • Don’t fire without just cause (Not the efficiency just cause… “No no… NO!” )

Means for improvement:

 

Or fire, lay off and etc. Then you will have more people sending call center’s dirtiest secrets to Ashtonderoy@gmail.com and the community will continue to have these very real engagements on issues.

Welcome to the Democratic Call Center.

If you are a narc in a suit. Here are what your employees are thinking about. That is the risk we take being open to everyone. We definitely get special visits occasionally. Peace bro!

“Why should I be expected to work outside bussing hours?” Anonymous

Again these are all done from in-person conversations. This is part of what needs to be written down in confidence today.

That is worth considering? Without making a living wage. Is it justifiable to expect your employees to have the utility of a vehicle? Then on that note is it a realistic expense? The truth is not always no. If your work contributes no effort to help workers organize carpools. I consider it down right negligent and completely unsustainable.

“My boss belittles my serious concerns in front of everyone.” Anonymous

This is unfortunate. Your boss is attempting to display dominance by taking out either what they perceive as a strong individual or a weak individual. It is a common trait in toxic competitive people. Sadly with efficiency environments, you open space to create a culture of the proven value of Utility. “I got this result so I deserve to be here today.” In Business School I personally felt this was an organizational culture worth talking about.

That is it for the Democratic call center. 

I summarize real concerns from real people. Ex call center workers I hope we are being safe. Protesting peacefully and being dignified. Never forget in Communications lays a culture of highly Democratic people.

Workers need the love

Grant Cardone might need to be granted his “legendary” Status.

Like Ashton Deroy’s page on Facebook 

I got people on the Grant Cardone Self-help train and I can tell them to jump off if I want. I say this because I feel the man has gone insane. He is talking about fighting the government to re-open his business and how everyone who got unemployment was an unloyal person. inner Screamings of morality as your audience and reader

Response to Retail Sales Plunge. 

“HEY DUMBASS ELITIST! PEOPLE GOT TO EAT!” 

Instead of “Be Obsessed or Be Average”. How about be insane or be moral? Where is his common sense? Where are his ethics at? Who does he see himself as? I see a person with no heart who doesn’t care. That is why I am 100% not endorsing Grant Cardone as an author & motivational sales speaker.

At this time I say we recognize the times he inspired us as a motivational comrade. While denouncing the ethics of the man. Essentially let’s grant Grant his legendary status and then move on with our attention. There is more than bottom-line logic. There is integrity, community & environment.

To: Workers of the call center world.

I truly believe if you follow these steps. We can truly have a positive lasting impact on the culture and community around call centers in the eyes of the workers. In the past, I may have been grosser or even disturbing with my methods. In this post, we are focussing on a cool, calm & collected approach to the democratization of call centers.

Democratize the call center

click here. How to democratize call centers_ Dedicated to the dismissed, terminated and generally disgruntled ex workers.

Reference: Economic principals.  in the case of this document, we are referring to the process of organizing worker communication resources and leveraging that for a Trade-off negotiation that hopefully one day brings these jobs to liveable wages. Or results in a worsened unsustainable economic alienation of the call centers.

What isn’t included, but should still be considered?

  1. Employee bill of Rights specific to workplaces. A document outlining employee rights and privilege benefits that come with them the second they get a job. We should all be able to answer the question “What are the perks to your job?” In our cases having an employee bill of rights would actually mean a lot more for us.
  2. On-site/near-site protests. Count Ashton Deroy in if these happen by the way.
  3. Unlimited Sick days – The time of sick notes and sick day limitations is surely over. I am sure by now we understand in relation to Coronavirus that we need to have a protocol to protect workers and ensure a limitless amount of sick days to prevent the spread of contagious disease and this needs to be ongoing, Tyranny always folds to practicality.
  4. Establishing the idea – “There is no such thing as just Business,” This is the mindset which gets corporatists thinking they can treat others however they want. There is no such thing as just business and we won’t reduce the process to simple mathematics only. If you cut me I will bleed. If you fire me I will starve. That is the plague of being an everyday worker. To ignore that is to ignore unjustified violence in the workplace that leaves to lasting problems in the communities of Kingston Ontario, Belleville Ontario, Trenton Ontario, Brighton Ontario & Toronto Ontario.

 

Issues with companies mentioned:

  • During my employment with StarTek, I made too little money, they demanded too much time & rather than try to make the job work out with me. Which employers in the past have done. My direct manager directly bullied me out of the building. Both her and the team champion.  I don’t think I should have been suicidal if my manager was just trying to improve my abilities at the job. This was malicious and had devastating effects to my mental health.
  • S&P Data – I was fired for calling them out on the internet while employed with them. I don’t regret it. In fact. To: Canadians getting harassing telemarketing calls. Here are the possible origins. They were breaking the law that is my personal opinion based on observation and memory. Click here to find locations to harassing call centers in Canada . You know when you are paid to do something for a living that you don’t ethically agree with? That is why I did what I did. There was a moral imperative, no means to speak up and against in the company. & finally no checks & balances.
  • Concentrix – Undisclosed and never to be disclosed Sources tell me about illegal changes to employee scheduling. I witnessed The company hire multiple drug dealers. I got to know people with backgrounds related to organized crime that the company had no idea about or management was in on. In the case of management participating in the drug culture. During my time under the Rogers Communications contract. In both Concentrix and stream. For a brief while, Belleville Concentrix hired my friend Crystal Gallagher who was busted for a drug business, and to be honest who I moved away from in a hurry. (she was nuts) I’m not sure if the company experiences some form of self-directed blindness, but it is way too stupid in there.
  • Hinduja Global Solutions – You just can’t keep people because you just can’t grasp stakeholder theory. Your single bottom line is just not going to work out for you. In the meantime, while you are playing an imaginary game of responsible corporation with your Business culture. A woman got sexually harassed and was forced to sit beside her harasser under your assigned seating policy for agents. You don’t accommodate anyone and you make us sit as employees through this stupid $ #* () meetings about competing with Fido’s website. Yes, agents make less revenue than the automated service! A big surprise considering the key benefit of telephone customer service is support. Also, customers had to pay additional fees that made ordering through the phone unappealing anyways.

When you can’t speak up properly internally? You have to blow the whistle from the outside. Let’s face it. These centers will not be in our communities forever anyways. There is no reason in the meantime that we can not ask them to do more for our people while they are here.

 

For more on the evils of call centers. Read their Indeed pages…. A lot of it is surprisingly accurate and not internet trolling. I am just saying!

Retention Disses

 

Like Ashton Deroy’s page on Facebook. 

Season 4, Episode 4 of Friends “I wanna quit the gym! I wanna quit the bank!”

Introduction: This post is going to have Retention disses for bad Customer/Company breakups I have experienced. It could be fun!

I know corporate culture loves to teach and train the practice of “retention”. Honestly, it gets to be a little too much when they tell you upon leaving GoodLife the staff says in a guilt-ridden manner “We’ll miss you.” cue puppy dog eyes. No one keeps me with guilt or clever sales statements. Your best shot would be discounting the service cost. Even still though… I don’t want anyone else but me deciding what I pay for and where I go on a regular basis.

To: GoodLife Fitness

I LEFT YOUR GYM TO GO TO COLLEGE WHERE MY TUITION COVERED THE COST OF A GYM MEMBERSHIP!

It doesn’t matter though…. If someone loses their job or needs to cut back expenses. That shouldn’t be anyone else’s opinion to weigh in on. “We are just trying to keep business.” No, you are not, you are being cruel and manipulative. Don’t have your staff who never talk to me say they will miss me. That is weird.

When they say? I want out, cancel my membership. Why can’t we just end our conversation there? It is their money. Treat it that way!

To: Fido

YOU USE YOUR RETENTION PROCESS TO UNDERCUT YOUR COMPETITORS THROUGH COMPARISON. THEIR NAME SHOULD NEVER EVEN BE SPOKEN BY YOUR AGENTS!

Why people leave your company? Maybe it is all the micro charges as accessibility issues you create! WTF?! Let your customers have service. Stop pushing self-serve.

People in Self-Serve Business Relationships… Deserve to have their other half aka customers leave them!


Message to readers: Quitting a gym shouldn’t be an opportunity for emotional manipulation. If you want to quit a service and they pull that. Make them want to leave you! I would string together some choice 4 letter words or tell them it is my right to manage my money how I see fit. Don’t get pushed around by the retention team.

Why my websites don’t suck?!

Reading recommendation:

The subtle art of not giving a fuck title

Believe it or not, this book will have a key element in my website’s Branding strategy. I just do not give a F*ck!

 

Okay so my websites clearly use https://logomakr.com/ for graphics, but I never claimed to be a Graphic Designer.

Okay, so the Social Media content isn’t consistent. I never claimed that my theories found that essential.

What have I claimed to be? Community Manager, Customer service representative, A Salesperson, a Writer, a Socialist, Social Reformer, Liberal Socialist, a content writer & A Business Planner.

That is the first reason why my website doesn’t suck. Yeah I am not some amazing artist (I have done art I am proud of.) I am engaging and I do write provocatively.

The second reason my websites don’t suck! 

We get most of our traffic from our Belleville Ontario tag! Meaning I know I am inspiring and engaging with bright Community College minds like me, my Uncle & my brother. I think Community values are the biggest benefit of Socialism. We hold deep value for friendly, equal & civil societies.

The last reason my websites don’t suck!

I have been doing a try & fail applied experimental approach to my website. It takes a while to find your style but we are finally getting into our niche. Yes, we generate more conversations than we do revenue, however, I am building a community I am truly learning to care for. Hence the reason I got Suicide Prevention training. We had a reader express Suicidal thoughts and I felt unprepared. Now if a reader does that I am trained to transfer her to a professional who can stop their family from experiencing incredible grief.

So sue me! I have a relationship with my readers and I am not a creative lifestyle brand! My Websites don’t suck. Want to upset someone greatly? Make them feel like crap about something they worked really hard on. Just remember human beings are prone to the human responses of emotional volatility. Working at Fido in Customer service in 2019 taught me that much.

Why anti-Communist discussions make me nervous?

Ashton Deroy Writes: Plain and simple the reason Anti-Communist movements make me nervous… You psychotic blindly angry types including people who sometimes go in to power go after the Socialists/Social Democrats under the umbrella of “They are the same thing!” No we are not! My culture originates with Socialist experiments originating in 1825 a cited part of Wikipedia confirms. Much of the influence to our Socialist Culture also comes from the 1960s.

With Marxism Das Kapital was published in 1885 & 1894. 

I understand Marxism. I have glanced at it. Although I would critique it as Communal living without a compassionate soul. With Robert Owen he believed in modern concepts that many healthy societies practice today. Such as 8-hour workdays & Secular governance. He also believed in a progressive value at the time related to Slave liberation which until 1865 during the Civil War could be thought of as a very Progressive value for his time. He was a Centuries ahead of his time in many ways.

I took American history in High School at Trenton High which is where I first learned about these Societies. I wouldn’t truly learn about Communism until my last year of college. At which point I was horrified and I didn’t really recognize it in relation to my movement. This wasn’t counterculture… It was was a repugnant revolution followed by regressive economic policies. I used The Great Courses Plus to begin learning Communist Economic history.

Do you see how fundamentally wrong it is to compare a North American Socialist who valued Slave liberation to Soviet Communists who created horrific conditions for their people? 

The Red Scare…

  • 1917-1920 – This relates to the Bolshevik Russian Revolution of 1917 . It was a fear based on a lower class society overthrowing a tyrannical zar.Winston Churchill was said to have viewed Stalin as a Peasant unfit to rule.
  • 1947-1957 – The Dawn of McCarthyism which leads to a pointless purge of Socialist Culture because he viewed Socialism as a synonym to Communism. They are not the same…. They are fundamentally different. One the state owns the individuals of the community. The other the community votes on the actions of their Community in relation to the Economy.

 

 

5 Years later… Dialogue on StarTek in Kingston Ontario.

Malicious intent

Ashton Deroy Writes:

Notice of edit by Re-branding: We no longer have a record of the original Blog post after editing it. This blog is being edited to be more pleasurable to the self-perception of the writer. Meaning that Ashton Deroy wants to convey a more professional & Socialist image. As a result, we are seeking to make blogs have depth rather than be the manifestation of a child’s temper tantrum. Which is a way I am comfortable describing the prior format to this blog post. In this blog, I do admit to developing suicidal ideation in my time working for StarTek. I believe that should be a statement on my mental capacity at the time of the very original version of this article and in relation to my feelings to this job. As you will read though I am working on taking massive steps to be more responsible without responding to legal intervention. Thankfully as of late, I have been granted a lot of freedom as a mental health blogger which has helped me calm down and accept past grievances.

Even After 5 years later & a return to Kingston Ontario. I still have a bad taste in my mouth when people mention my ex-employer StarTek. I mean I don’t know why? They were so “perfect” to me.

Listen the original to this article was a lot more abrasive but I am doing some image consideration at this time. This makes me think that as an ethical pursuit and also with the intention of seeking professional gains in the future and not harming a company. I will re-write this in the tone of a snappy ex-employee. Rather than a lunatic ranting over a bong which was how it was originally written.

To put this in Sustainable Business terms. This company is the definition of a Single bottom line company. There is no living wage, schedule consideration & their approach to mental health is laughable considering the damages they do to people’s lives.  Yes, I hold them accountable for some unnecessary sacrifices by employees.

No living wage: The living wage at the time this in Kingston Ontario is $17.57.  What is the hurt here? The hurt is the fact is a job like this puts people behind. Behind on retirement, behind on debts & behind on life experiences. The wage would be excusable in exchange for practical scheduling.

Average salary

Scheduling: The bottom line on schedules is that families come FIRST!  To do anything otherwise is to violate the standards for civil society.  That is it… That is all. Not controversial, actually it was a Conservative value when I was a kid.

Mental Health: I told multiple staff members are StarTek that I was having suicidal ideation. There was no attempt at handling it. All call center mental health intervention attempts to this point have been laughable even by reasonable person’s standards.

There this is just the subject matter related to the perception of the events at time this blog is written about. Which would be the time I worked for StarTek after graduating St. Lawrence college some time ago.
