Ha, who knew? Well, duh, just about everybody. An article on Yahoo's homepage today asked "Are You Working For a Shady Boss?" and the article goes on to say that studies show that 2 out of 5 bosses don't keep their word, and more than a forth bad-mouth their employees. I don't really think this qualifies as news worthy of mentioning since it's not really news to anyone who has spent much time in the work force.
I'll tell you though, articles like this sure make me happy to not have to deal with such things anymore. Having spent the better part of twenty years dealing with workplace politics working from home has never felt better.
