Wow, YES,..... you just described the working in a so called 'right to work' state in Arizona work experience!
How to handle it...well there is not much you can do in a so called 'right to work' state at all.
Coping strategies...using my favorite methods of stress relief, and trying not to take it home with me. Detach and role play, act and count the hours till I can get the F out of there.
Hope your luck improves.
yuck! My condolences to you too, on living in another backwards so called 'right to work' state. hmmm I have a nasty idea....I believe you guys in florida have fire ants all over the place like we do here.....perhaps your boss would like some pets....... (snickering)
Had a couple supervisors that were like that...they took credit for what their workers did and would pile on more work from the best ones. I transferred to a different department and the first supervisor eventually got fired. The second one got asked to leave after the 2nd horrific summer when she didn't hire enough workers and the summer work at the university where I worked didn't get done in time for the student's move-in. I was told she would never be allowed back on campus. The second supervisor caused a great deal of stress for me and most of the other employees in our department, some quit a couple years before they were eligible to retire, losing their medical insurance....I stuck it out and retired the first day I was eligible....could have worked a few more years but enough is enough in a place like that.
yes i did, i stood there until i found another job then i quit (but in good terms just in case i ever needed to come back) good luck;)
Unfortunately, that's the main advantage of working in union shops: if a boss can't observe certain standards of behaviour on a human level, he's "urged" to on a professional level.
Unplug the brakes in their car.
I quit and started my own business.
I was lucky. It was easy to start MY kind of business 34 years ago. It cost me nothing for start up. All I had to have was enough to live on for one month unit I got it up and running. No overhead, no expenses except for transportation.
Seriously, I decided to throw away my education in office work and go out and clean houses. I hated office work, so I w made up 500 fliers and put them in 500 mail boxes, and I got 2 responses and started with two clients. Within 3 months, I had enough clients that I had to take on a partner to work with me. All by being recommended to friends and family from one client to another. Word of mouth advertising is the best recommendation. I have been doing this work for 34 years; it will be 35 years in March.
Replace them. Find a new job.
