Patricia Nantume AP Language & Composition/ D1P4 The Bully at Work January 3, 2012 Mainly focused on prevention methods, situational examples and coping mechanisms with the bully, The Bully at Work by Ruth and Gary Namie, is an astonishing resource on workplace bullying. Gary introduces the main themes of the book by giving an example of his former boss, a bully. He also defines the victims of this social epidemic as Targets.
Workplace bullying, like childhood bullying, is the tendency of individuals or groups to use persistent aggressive or unreasonable behavior against a co-worker or subordinate. Workplace bullying can include such tactics as verbal, nonverbal, psychological, physical abuse and humiliation. This type of aggression is particularly difficult because, unlike the typical forms of school bullying, workplace bullies often operate within the established rules and policies of their organization and their society.
Ruth on the other hand didn’t have any previous experience as a Target or Bully but from fellow work-mates’ experiences, she bases her arguments on the topic. “Bullying is the scourge of the contemporary workplace but is too easily ignored by the people who could eradicate it if they were motivated,” says Ruth. Referred to as an epidemic as of society’s ignorance of the issue, workplace bullying has slowly risen to media attention. Other countries like the United Kingdom and China have implausibly low workplace bullying cases in comparison to the United States.
Despite the rising cases of victims according to statistical data, employers haven’t paid serious attention to reports given by victims. Nevertheless the accentuating cases of victims, society’s attention to the issue is rather ironic than Patricia Nantume 02. 03. 12 AP BIOLOGY THE SELFISH GENE CHAPTER 6/ GENEMANSHIP Quote: CHAPTER 7/ FAMILY PLANNING Quote: CHAPTER 8/BATTLE OF GENERATIONS.
