According to the study, wage workers volunteer less because they are used to calculating their time by the clock.
I’d also like to suggest that they have less time and feel as if they have less control over how they manage their day.
The Tip Off
“Companies that care about being socially responsible need to find creative ways to move beyond treating wage-earners as replaceable parts and create a corporate culture that celebrates and encourages the value employees add to the company and the community by giving back.”
