They're the norm actually. I normally have berate my staff into good email / sms etiquette.

I wonder if that 2% here also includes discouraged workers?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discouraged_worker



Lazy bums read below:

"In economics, a discouraged worker is a person of legal employment age who is not actively seeking employment or who does not find employment after long-term unemployment. This is usually because an individual has given up looking or has had no success in finding a job, hence the term "discouraged".

In other words, even if a person is still looking actively for a job, that person may have fallen out of the core statistics of unemployment rate after long-term unemployment and is therefore by default classified as "discouraged" (since the person does not appear in the core statistics of unemployment rate)."
