Work can be a rewarding experience. Creating something, providing a service, or teaching can all be gratifying experiences in the right conditions. But too often our efforts are minimized by managers, demands are constantly increased, and they neglect to treat their employees with respect. Lately we’ve been hearing a lot about managers who refuse to allow days off, or expect people to hurt themselves for reasons that hardly even benefit the business. These dehumanizing attitudes and tyrannical behaviors are often conveyed in scathing, caps locked signs that are prominently displayed for the world to see. While we don’t condone the behavior, it’s important to see how miserably some people are treated – and hope that these signs shine a light on how truly awful management can be.
