Another example of utilitarianism in the workplace would be an amoral stance on one's career, in this case. In order for them to get promoted they must sacrifice the time they spend with their family. Sure being mean to your family is morally wrong, but some people really thinks that depriving their family of their time is most useful in terms of furthering their career. I remember one of my family members worked at car factory when I was little; (actually he still works there today). He is always working a lot of long hour’s everyday instead of being at home with his wife and kids.

How does one make a utilitarian-based decision in a case like this?
