ある年末年始、働き方 Work and life balance during a certain year-end through new year days


I have once been forced to spend all the days in the holiday season around the new year days in the translation work.
A big company wanted me to finish translating the research report on metal friction by the beginning of their work on January 5th.
That means they don’t care about the contractors even if they have their own relaxed holidays around the year-end and the new year.
The problem of the overwork death was focused this year, too and one of the causes of too long overtime work is the impossible asked for by the customers or the boss.
This kind of crazy and selfish requests should be turned down. And the contractors and the subordinates must be prepared to refuse the requests. 
The customer is not always king. The request from the boss is not always right.
