Re: If not on-call, just don't answer
"Except that when they're fixed you might not be there to take advantage".
Probably very true, that.
But this is a bit of a meta for-the-greater-good thing, really.
Though now that I think of it, business entities with shoddy business practices are probably not long for this world, anyway, so you're out of a job in the long run no matter what you do.
Now, I *am* a realist, so I realize that what most people will actually do is smile and take it while looking for a better job elsewhere. Except that since everyone else is doing exactly the same thing, they may as well look for a unicorn, for all the good it will actually do.
And so we are doomed to forever keep abandoning eternally sinking ships. Hopefully in time to avoid personal disasters.
