The Not-So-Friendly American Workplace

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017

“The American workplace is grueling, stressful and surprisingly hostile,” according to a story in CBS Money Watch.  “So concludes an in-depth study of 3,066 U.S. workers by Rand Corp., Harvard Medical School and the University of California, Los Angeles. The American Working Conditions Survey (AWCS) found “the American workplace is very physically and emotionally taxing, both for workers themselves and their families.”

Amen to that!

New York City – It may take some more time for the Healthy Workplace bill to pass in the empire state in order for victims of bullying to gain leverage due to political snags. But to stop bullying in workplaces, legal remedies could come secondary to education and individual consciousness. A nurse clinician had said that dealing with bullying has to start with the individual and those victimized to take responsibility of calling out their bullies.

The bullying culture in America has become an epidemic, said a report of the Fortune Magazine, and asked employers to take notice. On the legislative side, a petition for a Healthy Workplace bill was passed around the social media for petition* before the NY assembly and senate upon the initiation of Hunter assistant professor for film and media studies Gregg Morris. It has been seven years since the bill had been cooked up and legislators up in Albany needed more time and effort to pass it into law.

*Editor’s Note: The bill before the NYS legislature is being revised.
