I still remember this woman….I remember her first name…more importantly, I remember how little I thought of (and still regard) my former ‘boss’ after his request. I have no earthly idea if he is still living…I left his employ in the mid-1980’s…it was my first experience with corrupt management on many levels…and I’ve been extremely unfortunate to have experienced it a number of times since then….the way I’m getting around it now is by operating my own business….
I would gladly bet any amount of money that if someone is corrupt, they will not contact me to do any consulting for them and I will never, ever work for anyone else again that steals employees’ money from trust funds (on an almost weekly basis)....engages in wage theft (on a regular basis)....falsifies RFP’s for major Health Insurers or Grant Proposals for major Religious Denominations..... physically abuses employees....uses Economic Development monies to renovate their parents’ home....celebrates birthdays, vacations and family parties with trust fund monies from all sources, including but not limited to nearly every taxing authority in the PA/NJ/MD/DE area....distributes Anarchist Literature while accepting monies from Funders....promotes pharmaceuticals for uses other than approved by the FDA....discriminates against a group of minority students and tries to cover up their discrimination by lying about the students....lies to employees regularly and asks employees to lie for them....tells employees that the reason they ‘use’ trust fund monies is because it is a good way to ‘finance’ one’s business...have a supervisor/officer of the company that tells her subordinate ‘my mission in life is to make sure anything that comes out of my mouth is believed’….be they a Nurse, PhD, Physician, Lawyer or Minister….I’ve learned to rely on KARMA and trust that KARMA will ‘sort out the poop’!!!
My diatribe was a Segway into the two (2) legal decisions made regarding ‘women’ this week…
Peggy Young vs. UPS and what the Supreme Court decision means for ‘pregnant’ workers and Ellen Pao, losing her gender bias case against the Venture Capital firm, Kleiner Perkins. Please understand….I don’t believe that just because a woman sues, she is correct…hell, no….I worked for a woman that, in my humble opinion, was and probably still is, an evil witch…she ‘owned’ the business and she was, again, in my humble opinion, as corrupt as they come…her excuse was that she left the decision to other people…but as she NOW knows….intent is irrelevant….if you do something wrong, blame it on someone else and/or act as if you have no idea what was/is going on….women make just as many mistakes in the business world as men….
