To start the new year of Labour & Pop Culture, we return to NBC’s comedy Superstore. Last year they had an interesting storyline about strikes. This year, there is a recurring bit about staff meetings that is just a touch too real. Here are some clips:
Staff made training videos about improving efficiency during bathroom breaks.
Staff debrief a workplace tornado.
Staff debrief a workplace robbery.
Honestly, it is hard to watch stuff that so bitingly accurate.
