asgs95848dIf you start to care about Quality and Scalability, then you can work 8 hours a day

Anakata14978dMy 2 cents here. Us Developers are really passionate problem solvers— but unfortunately that doesn’t really translate into us being valuable/indisposable entities to the business. In fact, it makes it easier for these white collar crooks to exploit us as code monkeys.
You are a tool of commerce to be exploited mercilessly and laid off when not needed (when you’re too old or your skillset/framework is outdated). Just put in your work sincerely—> collect your salary—> switch again if you get a better opportunity. In the mean time, you should get involved in Socialist/Leftist movements as well (we could really use your help).
Omg. Same feeling after changing jobs recently :(
sucks man, 10x is a toxic myth but hope you find a better job that cares about code quality soon.
Make the most out of it and find some pet projects to keep your mind sharp in your newfound free time, otherwise you are gonna get degraded in time
