A new bossy supervisor demands that workers place their machines 20% faster than they are actually allowed to, and he viciously complies
A while ago, Bored Panda covered the story Totally ignorant of the complexity of things and the ramifications of change, the boss’s fresh meat arrives and about a typical sequence of events and surrounding factors that initiate the ‘change’. It was a matter of both complexity and impact.
Well, it happened again in another part of the world. There is a natural shift in supervisors, and when the next supervisor messes up a very delicate machine and damages the product, they decide to put the blame on the person who was operating that delicate machine. Did. Oh, there’s malicious compliance somewhere in there.

Karma should be understood as a concept. Because karma seems to be the only tool that can teach poor managers… lessons about management.

This is a quickie (not like that) but delicious. A machinist brother shared a story of malicious compliance. In Australia in the 2010s, my brother worked for a small engineering company. The salary wasn’t ideal, but the job was worth it, as it produced everything from custom parts for racing cars to larger jobs for the military.
The brother was actually the floor leader for about 50 other employees and reported to the floor supervisor who reported to the owner. However, the current boss retired and the brothers tried their luck. They didn’t choose him, but someone else.And oh this is Woof.
And this manager suddenly shifted the blame, starting by asking employees to do as they were told.

The OP described the new Super as a “tyrant”. On the first day of the supermarket, he started being just mean by harassing his brother who didn’t get the job. “And he’s the new boss now so he’ll get used to it.” That’s the kind of crud we’re dealing with…
After some time the brothers were asked to run a CNC machine. this ), but at a faster pace. 20% faster, to be exact.my brother pointed out That It’s not the best idea, but the director wanted a career suicide in the fastest possible way. I mean, he claimed it. So the brothers obliged—perhaps with “getting used” in mind.
Unfortunately, passing the blame onto someone else didn’t work, but the malicious compliance certainly did, and it started his six-week demise.

Signal malicious compliance. The machine he had set to run 20% faster and indeed, in a matter of minutes, the alloy they were working on was gone. Perhaps. definitely damaged.
A wild owner appeared within seconds and asked what had happened to the brothers. A wild super also appeared and pointed at his brother, but all his brothers at the factory stepped in and supported his story of who actually decided to do the 20% faster thing.
Well, as expected given the context and the way things were handled, the owner went ballistic with the supervisor. But in the long run, it ultimately meant he started a six-week straight decline. But the brothers found another job, a better one, and quit, so they weren’t there to see it unravel.
About 7,000 people applauded the mechanic, and the comments section was filled with people making fun of the manager and sharing stories.
But six weeks later he got a call. it was the owner. They explained that Superman had been fired for “poor working standards,” and they wanted the brother to come in his place. he declined.

People online praised the OP’s brother in the form of about 7,000 upvotes (97% approval rate). People still seem surprised that managers like this still exist, even though this kind of deal is frequent. But this kind of karma may also be what they need to make a change.
Others shared stories of bad management and how others screwed up their machines to a higher degree.oh you should be grateful That commentator’s wordplay: “It sounds like the company’s biggest tool was its new supervisor.”
