When people have high demands and high control, their life can be hectic but manageable. They figure out what needs to be done and when. 

When people have high demands and low control, their life is both hectic and miserable. There is nothing to figure out. They are trapped in a system that piles on the demands but denies them the control to meet those demands. 

This is why work sucks. 

If you don't give people more control over how they meet the demands of work and life, people aren't going to be able to give their best at either. If people can't give their best at either you get a world much like the one we have now., where people are both unhappy and unproductive.
