What Makes People Work Hard? (According to F. Green's study "It's 
Been a Hard Day's Night: the Concentration and Intensification of 
Work in Late Twentieth Century Britain," based on workers' 
self-reports, workers' "own discretion" has remained the chief source 
of work pressure since the late 80s and that work pressure due to it 
has become more intense than ever in Britain. "The dull compulsion of 
economic relations completes the subjection of the labourer to the 
capitalist," so much so that, in some cases, the worker's own 
subjectivity, as well as her fellow workers' [the second most 
frequently mentioned source of work pressure in 1997], becomes the 
most efficient wage-slave driver?):
