Help With People Problems At Work
EMPLOYED - WE'RE THE LUCKY ONES
Posted by: cna
I know I'm fortunate to be employed. In fact, I have 2 jobs and I'm feverishly 'working' hard to pay off a big financial drain. Isn't it odd that it's so easy for some of us to console each other - complete strangers having problems at work - while we ourselves struggle with hair pulling problems at our own jobs? We live in extremely difficult economic times. We NEED our jobs more than ever now. What baffles me the most is how cruel our co-workers, supervisors and bosses can be to us. Then, I remind myself that those people are probably cruel to others in every other walk of their lives. Retirement for me is a good 12 years away, but I've found myself longing for it. How sad. How can we fix this human defficiency? We all need to start treating our co-workers and 'subordantes' like the human beings we are - worthy of respect and decency. Any thougths out there on how the 'employment industry' can make itself whole again? After all - it's the people that make employment an institution in the first place. We spend a great of time at our jobs. Here's my final question. What actions would be necessary to stop the employment wars? Any thougths or ideas?
