I don't talk about this much, but I've been writing about utilities for more than a decade as a job. They privatized most big utilities promising that exactly this wouldn't happen.

jobs should be more like doing occasional chores to keep society running rather than being shoved into a 24/7 social role which defines most of your waking existence and all the while is likely to be completely bullshit make-work designed to put you into a role which is designed to make you emphasize with the worldview of your rulers.
