The website, WorkingAmerica.com had their annual contest to find out who is the worst boss in America.
People were encourage to write stories about who were the worst of the worst. Some stories were downright disgusting.
Out of 640 submitted, the number was paired down to the 8 worst stories.
The “People’s Choice” Grand Prize winner was, “Hillbilly Business Practices: 101”, the unbelievable story about a poorly run paramedic organization in Illinois.
The staff picked “I Didn’t Realize I Could See Into The Future.” as Working America’s “Most Outrageous Story” winner. The story was how worker was given the task of organizing a worker appreciation day and what happened the day of the event.
This contest shows how poorly workers are treated and why instances of workplace violence happen. It should be a wake-up call to those in key positions to make sure their workers not only are taken care of, but given the respect they deserve.
It shouldn’t be that hard to do.
