Opinion | My Job and I: Is This a Love Letter?
  + stars: | 2021-04-12 | by ( ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.98   time to read: +1 min
To the Editor:Re “I’ll Never Let Myself Love a Job Again” (Sunday Review, April 11):Like Emi Nietfeld, I felt deeply lost in my early 20s, and when I landed a job at a tech start-up, I thought that I’d been saved. When I finally left, I swore that I would never love a job again. After six months at my new job (chosen because I knew that I could never love it), I learned that I couldn’t stand spending 40 hours a week doing work that sparked no passion. I learned that it is possible to love your job without losing yourself if your employer’s long-term strategy doesn’t rely on burnout. Instead of telling workers to set boundaries, maybe we should devote more of our public discourse to how companies can inspire employees without exploiting them.

Ex-Google engineer Emi Nietfeld said she endured harassment and retaliation while working there. In an op-ed for The New York Times, she said Google's response led her to vow to "never love a job again." "Saying anything about his behavior meant challenging the story we told ourselves about Google being so special," Nietfeld wrote, adding: "Google was the Garden of Eden; I lived in fear of being cast out." When she eventually filed a formal HR complaint, Nietfeld wrote: "Google went from being a great workplace to being any other company." I fell for the fantasy that it could be," Nietfeld wrote.

was filed, Google went from being a great workplace to being any other company: It would protect itself first. I later learned that Google had similar responses to other employees who reported racism or sexism. My manager told me H.R. wouldn’t even make him change his desk, let alone work from home or go on leave. Six months after my return, when I broached the subject of promotion, he told me, “People in wood houses shouldn’t light matches.”

If finished, the 1,230-kilometer (764-mile) Nord Stream 2 pipeline will become one of the longest offshore gas pipelines in the world. It is designed to deliver Russian gas directly to Germany under the Baltic Sea, bypassing Ukraine. Is Nord Stream 2 inevitable? Nord Stream 2 is a 1,230-kilometer (764-mile) gas pipeline that will double the capacity of the existing undersea route from Russian fields to Europe — the original Nord Stream — which opened in 2011. The special ship is being used for construction work on the German-Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea.

Kay Nietfeld | AFP | Getty ImagesGermany's economy contracted by 5% in 2020, according to full-year GDP (gross domestic product) data released on Thursday. The preliminary figures, which were slightly better than the 5.1% forecast, come after a year of economic turbulence for Germany, and the rest of the world, as the coronavirus pandemic prompted disruption to businesses and large swathes of the economy. Coronavirus cases have prompted several lockdowns on public life and economic activity in Germany. Chancellor Angela Merkel announced last week that the latest lockdown would be extended until the end of the month. On Thursday, Germany reported more than 25,000 new cases of the coronavirus in the last 24 hours, taking its total number of cases to 1,978,590, data from the Robert Koch Institute showed.

Kay Nietfeld/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoBERLIN (Reuters) - It will take more than renaming Facebook’s cryptocurrency to address the concerns regulators have about authorising its launch in Germany and Europe, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said on Monday. In a statement after a video conference of G7 finance ministers at which cryptocurrencies were discussed, Scholz said that relaunching Libra under its new name of Diem was only a cosmetic change. “A wolf in sheep’s clothing is still a wolf,” he said. “It is clear to me that Germany and Europe cannot and will not accept its entry into the market while the regulatory risks are not adequately addressed.”He added: “We must do everything possible to make sure the currency monopoly remains in the hands of states.”

Kay Nietfeld/Pool via REUTERSBERLIN (Reuters) - European Union member states will soon agree on a disputed rule-of-law mechanism linked to the bloc’s recovery plan as all countries, including Poland and Hungary, would benefit from its approval, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said on Tuesday. “For me, this is a question where it’s important to belong to those who never give up. And that is why I remain confident that we will soon be able to come to an agreement,” Scholz as current EU chair told reporters following a virtual meeting of EU finance ministers. “I am sure that no one will be so unwise as to prevent decisions from being made now,” Scholz said.

Because you wouldn’t need Plan As if you only had Plan Bs.”European lawmakers have suggested that the remaining 25 EU members states could push ahead with their recovery plan if Poland and Hungary remained opposed.

Like the U.S., pandemic fatigue has set in across Europe where residents say pubs and bars in the U.K. and France have been packed ahead of the lockdowns. The worsening outbreak in Europe is starting to strain hospital systems there, which epidemiologists worry will happen in the U.S. in the coming weeks. The United Kingdom has averaged more than 22,347 new cases per day over the previous week, Johns Hopkins data shows. Italy reported a record 27,864 average new cases on Tuesday, up 58% from the previous week, according to the data. Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said the U.S. outbreak is about three weeks behind Europe, where cases are "astronomical."
