When was the last time you’ve been able to take an extended leave of absence due to work-related stress without having to jump through loopholes or be dishonest? If you go to your boss and tell he/she that you’ve been feeling stressed out lately and would like to take two weeks off work, what do you think management would tell you? Would your manager tell you to call a professional if you’re stressed out or would your manager authorize you to be off work without you having to be dishonest about the nature of your requested time-off?
This past Friday, I spoke to my manager about taking a leave of absence due to stress. I also told her that my knees are aching. Her immediate response to me was that she doesn’t just authorize people time off from work just because they’re stressed out. She told me to call EAP (Employee Assistance Program) if you’re stressed out. Immediately, I got upset and told her that I don’t need to call EAP. I told her, “I need some time off from work. If other people come in your office and ask you for time off, you give them time off so why can’t you do that for me? What’s the problem as to why you can’t give me some time off?” This is when my manager became upset and told me that it isn’t true about her giving other people time off from work when they tell her they are stressed out. She told me that she rarely authorizes people for time off, and she can’t just give me time off because I’m stressed out. She told me that I needed to go see a doctor to have my knees checked out, and if it’s something serious, the doctor would authorize some days off for me. She also said that if I gave everybody time off who came to her office and said they were stressed out, I wouldn’t be able to run an operation.
Briefly, my manager and I went back and forth about why I needed time off. She told me not to accuse her of giving other people time off when they say they are stressed out. At some point, I started to walk out of her office because I felt like she wanted to argue and wasn’t being understanding. I’m glad I had my Union representative in the office with me at the time. My manager had also made a reference to me having brought my Union representative into the office. She said that people usually just come to her and ask for time off without their Union representative. At some point, she gave me an EAP brochure and told me to call. She said that if you talk to an EAP professional, and they find that you need some time off, the next thing I know they’ll be calling me and telling me that this employee needs to be off from work.The reason I had my Union representative present with me when I spoke to the manager about taking a leave of absence from work was because the last two times I had requested time off due to stress, this same manager had put me through hell (figuratively). In my opinion, she is a Christian hypocrite. I don’t trust her because I’ve been through too many problems with her. I know she wants to fire me, because she can’t control me the way she controls others.If I needed to talk to an EAP professional, I would’ve called two months ago because this is when I began feeling stressed out. The Employee Assistance Program can’t cure work-related stress, mental/physical fatigue, and frustration. They can’t cure modern-day slavery! They can’t cure asshole bosses either!
Having been around Christians most of my life, many of them are the most controlling and judgmental people on the planet. They bring their corrupt religious philosophies and concepts into the workplace, and think that everybody who falls under their supervision should fall in line with their dictatorial rules, which are often outside the guidelines of company policies. When it comes to ethical violations, these people are the most serial offenders alive.According to company policies, systematic harassment (of any kind) and retaliation are prohibited. I have documented evidence regarding a number of times in which management has perpetuated systematic harassment and retaliation against me.Most Christian bosses I’ve known walk around with an air of superiority, which is why they feel that they can impose their biblical ideologies and philosophies upon those under their supervision. Because they truly believe in the slave/master relationship, this is how they set up their work environment and believe that all subordinates are to be obedient slaves and never raise his/her voice in opposition to his/her own slavery and ill-treatment.
Corporations have turned us into nothing more or less than modern-day slaves. Whether you put on a suit and tie and go into an air-conditioned building to perform regimented work tasks in an eight-hour, nine-hour or ten-hour period, or whether you put on a uniform to perform your duties for a government agency or the like, you are still a corporate slave. The corporations underpay many of us while funding presidential elections in which they give millions of dollars to their chosen (s)elected candidates in order to get these crooks calling themselves leaders to pass laws perpetuating and maintaining corporate financial interests, which enslaves those who are powerless and not rich. The corporations (controlled by Illuminati families and their agents) have turned the U.S. Government into another corporation ran by sociopaths who also fund dictatorial regimes in foreign nations in order to serve its corporate financial interests in these nations.
You want to know why I despise my current job. I despite it because I’m tired of being taken advantage of and being exploited by my bosses who want people to be slaves while they blatantly ignore the rules set forth in the Union’s contractual agreement! In addition, I have goals and dreams that yet have not been achieved, which is also why my current job is an embarrassment and a source of frustration for me.
Corporations are exploiting workers for cheap(er) wages all over the world. Corporate executives have outsourced millions of American jobs to exploit foreign workers while forcing them to work longer hours and paying them considerably lesser wages than they would American workers. This is how the late Steve Jobs became a billionaire while at the head of Apple. Striking it rich means exploiting the labor force for cheap(er) wages. This is the capitalist philosophy, which is why much of the world’s population live in poverty today. Companies like Wal-Mart have successfully destroyed Mom-and-Pop businesses for decades by exploiting millions of laborers all over the world and paying them cheap wages to make cheap products, and thus, turning a huge profit by selling these same cheap products at astronomical high prices. Our government along with their corporate sponsors and donors have caused millions of Americans to become underemployed. You attended college like me only to end up on a job you hate while making considerably less money.
From the factory workers in China to the slave laborers in African mines where children are also being exploited for their labor, corporations have effectively turned most of the world’s population into workaholics dependent upon corporations for their very survival. Right now, American workaholic-slaves are dependent upon corporations for energy, food, clean water and land. Corporations (Illuminati-run, controlled and operated) have monopolized most of the world’s wealth and resources, and they use the control of (energy, food, water and land) to control and manipulate humanity. The Illuminati bloodlines have been running everything for thousands of years, and not your mythological sky daddies named Jesus, Jehovah and Allah! The Illuminati “Elites” have controlled religion, politics and wealth prior to the rise of the Roman Empire. It was the “Elites” who collapsed ancient Rome’s government and economy. Really, they transferred wealth from the hands of the common people into their hands. An economy is never truly destroyed, only transferred to a different kind of currency. The Illuminati bloodlines will also collapse America’s government and economy.Many people go about their daily work routine not even realizing that they’ve spent much of their lives working on jobs they hate, and never realizing their true potential outside of being a corporate workaholic-slave. You take a lot of unnecessary bullshit from your bosses, because you need the damn job for your own survival!
The corporations control every aspect of your life. From the food that you’re able to buy and consume to the electricity bill you pay each month; the corporations own you because they provide you with your way of life and living! You can’t just grow your own food in the backyard without permission from the government, because the government own your land! Furthermore, the Homeowners’ Association in certain areas will not allow you to grow food in the backyard!Many of you feel trapped on jobs you hate, because perhaps you don’t have enough education and credentials to rise above your current job situation. If you could afford to return to college and get into the field that you really want to be in, you would return to the college of your choice, and get greater skills and credentials in your chosen field of study. Some of you may have applied for a government grant, which you never got. But at least you did something unlike the lazy asses who sit around all day while watching others be productive. These same fuckers will break into your homes and take what you got instead of getting off their lazy asses, and earning some income to afford those things they want. I applied for grant money several years ago. I never even got a response letter. I will apply for grant money again.
The corporatocracy you call democracy is not interested in basic human rights or workers’ rights. The corporatocracy view you as its cattle to be poked and pronged into submission. If the corporatocracy could return to chattel slavery without civilian resistance, it would. The “Elites” who control the White House and Congress know that their unjust policies and laws are causing civil unrest, which is what they want. They want to be able to declare Martial Law on American citizens in order to put down any rebellions associated with the largest monetary transfer the world will ever see when they collapse the U.S. financial system once and for all. They have built concentration camps and fusion centers all around you. They’re preparing for population reductions.According to Infowars writer Shepard Ambellas, “On February 11, 2009, D. H. Williams, writing for the Daily Newscaster, reported on the revelations of an Indiana county municipal official in the vicinity of Chicago who revealed how FEMA and DHS were attempting to prepare “county officials to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan to deal with flooding, fires, high winds and tornadoes.””FEMA inquired to where mass graves could be placed in the county and would they accept bodies from elsewhere,” writes Williams.
They plan to put American citizens in these mass graves! In the event of a major catastrophic or terrorist event similar to 9/11 and worse, the Department of Homeland Security has the power to authorize detainment of any U.S. citizen without cause. Any protesting is now considered low-level terrorism, according to the National Defense Authorization Act passed in the U.S. House of Representatives, 283-136. The National Defense Authorization Act was signed by President Obama on December 31, 2011. They are passing laws under the public radar to restrict and abolish your freedoms.
It should be pretty clear to all of us that America is no longer a free society. It is no longer a Republic. It is a Police State while proclaiming to the world that it is a democratic state. The rest of the world sees through the hypocrisy of the United States, which is why many North African and Middle Eastern countries are opposing the imposition of democracy. After all, American-styled democracy is just another form of dictatorship, which is already a way of life in those countries. What is the difference between the current government dictatorship under Judeo-Christian values and beliefs in America and the theocratic dictatorship under Islamic philosophies and traditions in other parts of the world? One system is a lot more extreme than the other system even though both systems are equally detrimental to the advancement of humanity.
There are laws under theocratic Islamic States that allow women to be stoned to death for adultery. At least in America, women don’t have to worry about being stoned to death for adultery. However, laws prohibiting domestic violence are not as strong as they should be. As a result, many women are suffering under the brutality of their husbands, and are often put into positions in which they have to risk going to prison if they fight back against their abusive husbands in self-defense, which often results in manslaughter charges. Understand that the bible also condones rape, incest, murder, racism, sexism, homophobia and slavery just like the Quran. Islamic fundamentalists want to maintain slavery over the population. Although many citizens want freedom, they still oppose the values and philosophies of the Western world.
The Department of Homeland Security was established in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks upon the United States on September 11, 2001. The official story was 19 hijackers had taken control of four commercial airliners. These were coordinated attacks upon U.S. citizens. Two planes hit the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center killing thousands of civilians. Another plane hit the Pentagon. Passengers on one plane had overcome the hijackers and they all died when the plane crashed.There are varying sources on what truly happened on September 11, 2001. One source says that a plane never hit the Pentagon. Other sources say that the so-called 9/11 terrorists received pilot training on an American airfield! Other sources say that Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda had claimed responsibility for the events of 9/11, but were not the real culprits. There are sources that claim Osama bin Laden was a CIA agent in the 1980s.
I believe the U.S. Government was still using the so-called terrorist leader as a CIA operative in connection to the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Other sources say that the U.S. Department of Defense and the White House had prior knowledge of a coming terrorist attack. There are sources that claim a building, which was a block away from the World Trade Center blew up even though this building was not hit by any aircraft.I think the events of 9/11 was not only coordinated by the so-called terrorist organization headed by Osama bin Laden but also by our government! The corruption goes deeper than what many people think and believe. There was a secret agenda to pass the Homeland Security Act of 2002, which was not even the first proposal put on the table. Homeland Security had been proposed a few years prior to 9/11.Most if not all corporate owners, managers and supervisors (especially if they are religious nutjobs) are sociopaths!
“Four percent of the people on planet earth are sociopaths, and too many of them wind up in positions of authority,” reports Davia Temin in Forbes. “The odds are that the boss you and the rest of the office are having so much trouble with is a sociopath.
In essence, sociopaths are unable to understand human emotion and lack a conscience. They view others as existing solely for their use and abuse. Thanks to those traits they usually rise to the top. That’s because no sense of right or wrong stands in their way. What helps with continued upward mobility is that they have down cold the tools of both persuasion and manipulation, especially charm. As your boss, they will wreak havoc, turn team members against each other, engage in outbursts of public humiliation of all of you, and berate good work that threatens them.
What experts advise is to not take this personally and to plan an exit strategy. These forces of evil cannot be changed or even tamed, at least not for long. The trick is to protect your job and sense of your professional worth until you can find another job. Note the key here is: self protection.
To do this, you will have to think like a lawyer. Document everything, ranging from the boss’s aberrant behavior to downright unethical and illegal activities.”
Life is too short to waste it being somebody’s slave bitch! You have to stand up for yourself. If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.
