Bullying in the workplace is rampant in the United States and has increased as workers' jobs become more threatened by the economic crash. Unethical groups of tenured professors bully adjuncts, supervisors (often women) bully talented underlings that threaten them, store managers bully competitors on their job track, military officers bully the newly enlisted. People who bully are often sociopaths who are used to preying on the unsuspecting and gentle people around them. To increase their status and power, bullies spread lies about, ostracize and secretly and publicly attack their chosen victims. There are 12,000,000 sociopaths in the United States, and they blend into the workplace as they stab co-workers in the back----often leading the co-worker to lose his/her job. Adult victims of bullying are scarred for life and even commit suicide. The bullies often organize others to participate as a group to deeply traumatize the bullied worker. Bullies were often the bully in their own family, and they learned their bullying tactics at home first. Other countries have passed national laws against bullying in the workplace. In the United States anti-bullying programs are dependent upon each workplace, so if there is a group in power that doesn't want an anti-bullying policy to be designed and enforced, the entire job-site is left open to a bullying free-for-all. State legislatures and governors have been neglectful of passing anti-bullying laws, and the federal government has ignored the issue too.
