The problem is the high cost for this type of care—your entire life.  This goes beyond the old days of “Crackberry” syndrome.  You’re expected not only to respond to emails at any hour of the day or night, but also to spend longer hours at the office.  From the company’s perspective, why would you possibly need to leave?  The company did your laundry, fed you three gourmet meals and snacks all day long, picked up those errand items from Target, gave you time to work out at the on-site gym, and even styled your hair.  And now you owe them your discretionary effort.

It does seem like more companies these days want employees to go all in.

If it's an enjoyable workplace, engaging work, and the pay is good, most people will dedicate themselves to an employer, family is probably the biggest competitor to this model.
