  41. The middle class is under siege like never before, and the future appears dismal.People are no longer being taken care of—pensions are gone; 401(k)s have beensliced in half; and it’s hard to see where to go from here. You might be thehardworking secretary, the one with institutional knowledge, the person who hasgiven so much and deserves security and respect. And while you might deservethese things, your tenure is no guarantee that you’re going to get them.Suddenly, quite suddenly in the scheme of things, it seemslike the obedient worker bought into a sucker’s deal. Theeducated, hardworking masses are still doing what they’retold, but they’re no longer getting what they deserve. Thissituation presents a wonderful opportunity.Godin, Seth (2010-01-19). Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? (pp. 4-5). Penguin Group. Kindle Edition.
