    practice in the United States. In free-work states like Arizona or Florida, employers exploit employees and keep them under constant pressure and mental stress making them resign. As a bullied ex-employee I can surrender testimony of such dishonest practice that attempts against...

    For twenty years I had been supported

    and appreciated at work and received the highest evaluations. A new central administration then came in whose supervisors faulted my work at every turn, while praising and extolling the virtues of their new hires right off the street. Other long-term employees got similar...
