I've created hundreds of documents, informational packets, HPI packets, SOPs, templates, etc for the company I work for with little more than a sliver of an idea from my boss to work off of. He let slip in a meeting today that he views the current business as a “laboratory” where “we” create these things to eventually be sold as a package to other companies.

Most of us really like our job so we are looking for solutions that don't put our job at risk… …I work in a small office of about 20 people, and we are staffed 24/7 365.

Btw, if anyone does think that this is a good idea, plz no riots. We want to kill the corporations, not each other.
I work from 5am to whenever I get off. Today I started my day by working from home at 530 am. Got to the office continued working there until 530 pm. Drove 45 minutes back home to get online and finish work. Boss sends a teams message throwing a fit because it took me 10 minutes to respond to a customers text message.
