Recently I had a conversation with a friend that told me she has fallen into a depression because of her job. She finds herself in an unhealthy work environment that she’s never previously experienced before in her life, and puts up with situations she can’t believe she tolerates. I ask myself, why is this the case, and what does this mean for the future of how the culture of the work force operates?
In modern times, some work forces are changing the rules; they are taking advantage of employees because quite frankly, they can. Employees find themselves in a miserable work environment that they endure because they don’t have any other job opportunities. People of this nature come to work and swallow things they might not otherwise sign onto or put up with. This is not right, but unfortunately we are living in times where we find ourselves stuck in our jobs. We are scared to make waves, or stand up for ourselves for fear of losing an income.
