People rarely change. Progressive discipline, unions, tenure and other things now make it all but impossible to deal with people in the workplace. Private industry on the other hand has an easier time hiring and firing but labour boards and human rights boards now take up the cause of people who do not want to conform to the workplace environment and usually side with the exception rather than the rule. I often tell people that things will turn around here with a few timely retirements and a few welcome deaths!
