Much talk is circulating lately about politicians needing to show their Populist cred. We officially invite STATE LAWMAKERS who give greater weight to constituents’ needs over corporate campaign donors to introduce or co-sponsor the WBI anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill. It is a populist’s dream. It is not draconian. In fact, it is friendly to employers who don’t need to abuse their workers to succeed. The good ones have nothing to fear. And for the first time since civil rights laws were enacted, you take a step toward compassion for individuals. Please move your state closer to joining the rest of the western industrialized world and take the US out of the dark ages. Support the HWB. Contact us today at the Workplace Bullying Institute, 360-656-6630.
