Over 200 shipyard employees in Halifax walked off the job yesterday to protest alleged bullying by their employer.
CBC news reported that the workers at Irving Shipyards decided to protest after the suicide of a suspended worker earlier in the week. The deceased, who has not been named, was suspended after a disagreement over how to build staging. Some of the workers believe the suspension may be connected with the worker's decision to commit suicide.
Two diseases seem to be gradually worsening in Canadian society: bullying and corruption.
Both can be interrelated and seem to afflict our children in schools and our politicians in the public arena, respectively.
Sometimes one disease is a simple continuation of the other, sometimes they are totally separate, but both diseases are nevertheless extremely dangerous.
