ONE IN FOUR AMERICANS CALL THEIR WORKPLACE A DICTATORSHIP


ZOGBY One out of every four working Americans describes their workplace as a dictatorship, while just 34% of bosses in the American workplace react well to valid criticism, according to a new Workplace Democracy Association - Zogby Interactive survey.

The survey also found that less than half of working Americans - 46% - said their workplace promotes creative or inventive ideas, while barely half - 51% - said their co-workers often feel motivated or are mostly motivated at work.

Many managers will cheerfully admit that democracy has nothing to do with the laws governing the workplace. For that matter, many teachers will cheerfully admit the same thing regarding the classroom, so it's small wonder that the average American worker/consumer drone grows up believing that he or she has no real rights worth defending. For all we preach in regard to the great god Demos, our observances of his principles are usually more honored in the breach than in their practice.
