I agree with Ellison's opinion because a person wouldn't be able to pay their bills if they didn't have a job. Therefore people live off of their job because that is how they get their money.

"Unless prompted and encouraged, some team members may hold on to information, or not give it to the right person, because of the hierarchical cultural barriers to speaking out. ...if you do not explicitly welcome input, you probably won't get it. And, if the team leader doesn't mean it-if he or she really doesn't want input from other people and is saying she does proforma-that quickly becomes known and renders the words ineffective." - Jo Shapiro, MD
