Letter from Reader: Stressful Environment & An Employer Who Is Out Of Touch
Dear America's Work Stories,
I'm working in a work environment that is incredibly stressful with some very dysfunctional people and a management that is only concerned with the bottom line. There are so many people with poor communication skills and herrendous internpersonal skilils. I'm a father who also has duties at home. I can't sleep and this work environment gets only get worse. The worst part is that the job market is so bad, you can't move anywhere else. I can't believe that we live in a country where there are no checks and balances in the workplace and a Department of Labor who just isn't doing their job. This company has also been in legal trouble.
I'm also hearing from other friends that their companies (in addition to mine) aren't providing any training or development for anyone. This is just something else. The American workplace is in very bad shape. The mainstream media IS NOT talking about this but we thank you for giving us a place to talk about these issues.
