Petition Statement

Enough is Enough Petition:

The time has come, where we all have to join hands in stopping an internal virus called “Workplace Bullying.” Many have experienced this brutal occurrence of bullying at Verizon (where I previously was employed), and now I have found that other companies have the same issues.

Bullies are an internal terrorist, attacking the morals of our character and society from the inside. They are destroying good people, and their lives. Just as we, as a country, dominate in containing worldwide terrorism, we need to strengthen our cause, and focus on luring out the bullies, in each and every workplace in this country. We need a law that helps to hold workplace bullies accountable. “The Healthy Workplace Bill” does such a thing, as it will improve lives and productivity in the workplace.

Mr. President, please help to stop this ongoing abuse. “Enough is Enough.”

“The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”
-Edmund Burke

Petition Background

We forget that statistics are people, and people that matter.

• The U.S. Department of Labor produced a fact sheet on numerous events in the workplace. In July 2010 they concluded that over a 5 year span, from 2004–2008, there were an average of 564 work-related homicides that occurred each year in the United States of America. About 4 out of 5 homicide victims in 2008 were male.

• The U.S. National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health states that homicide is the second highest cause of death on the job after motor vehicle accidents. That amounts to every 3 cases to 10,000 workers. Over 2 million workers are assaulted each year and 2, 000 people are murdered.

• A 2007 national survey by Zogby International and Workplace Institute found that:
• 37% of workers have experienced workplace bullying.
• 62% of employees who received complaints about workplace bullying either ignored the problem or made it worse.
• 64% of bullying targets eventually are pushed out of their jobs.
• 73% of workplace bullies are supervisors.

- In the spring of 2011, I was in a Federal Deposition with Verizon, and they admitted, under oath, that they receive over 104,000 EEO complaints a year. That comes out to 8,666 a month, and 2,000 a week, 400 a day. Why so many?
