name of dream: organiser 5

 

had landed the contract to be the site manager at a shallow, open-cast mining project which would have forty or so men working on it for three, four or six months

 

had presented myself at the interview for the job as a modern-looking, fair-minded and innovative manager

 

during the interview the new approach being presented would justify the company accepting a lowering of profits to ensure they fulfilled the contract on schedule and avoided penalty clauses and the proposals would stand the company in good stead for future contracts by ensuring that when the word got out that the company gave the best working conditions there would never be a shortage of applicants

 

what clinched it for me was the proposal that men with wives or girlfriends would be able to accompany the men

 

there would be the two accommodation sites

 

one accommodation site would be for the women and the other for the men

 

the sites would be separated by about five kilometres

 

audio/visual communication links between the two sites

 

a four-day working week (monday through thursday)

 

on thursday nights the men would be transported to the women's site for the long week-end

 

sleeping and entertainments for both sites during the week and more detailed planning for the long weekends

 

water, food and cooking arrangements

 

drinks only on thursday night and friday and saturday

 

termination clauses for employees who didn't keep to the rules

 

was thinking about how to include children for a few minutes after waking
