No Job Is Worth Losing The Precious Gift Of Life
[SNEAK PEEK] Powerful new video documents a family's struggle to understand why a young mom's supervisor "kept badgering her and backing her into a corner..." That year reflected the highest number of workplace suicides (USDOL).
By: Beverly Peterson
Unfortunately even the USDOL admits numerous incidents aren't reported since their data does not reflect incidents that happened at home instead of on the jobsite and are difficult to confirm as job related. Their figures show the most vulnerable groups are males (94%), aged 45-54 (36%), and white (78%).
As stress factors increase in today's harsh economic climate, Jodie's Aunt reminds us: "The fact that this was allowed to happen to her is an abomination...it has to be ended. No Jodies should die."
This video is the latest edition in the online documentary http://NoJobIsWorthThis.com about victims of workplace bullying and their struggle to enact law to stop abusive bosses.
