A sociopath who hates her job in the meat packing industry?

Or perhaps classic worker rebellion along the lines of workplace rebellion.

Sabots were considered a work shoe associated with the lower classes in the 16th to 19th centuries. During this period, the years of the Industrial Revolution , the word sabotage gained currency. An alleged etymology describes the actions of disgruntled workers who willfully damaged workplace machinery by throwing their sabots into the works (see: Luddite ).
