High Cost of Toxic Work Place Culture Discussed on America’s Work Force

Johnny Taylor, president of the Society for Human Resource Management spoke with America’s Work Force on Sept. 26 about high turnover in workplaces.

Society for Human Resource Management Taylor spent his time on AWF explaining the many reasons why there is high employee turnover in certain workplaces. One reason why he said people leave their jobs is because they dislike their bosses. Taylor said that the possible reasons why people dislike their bosses are because they feel undervalued, disliked by their boss, they are not inspired in their workplace and they feel their bosses are not great leaders. Another possible cause of worker dissatisfaction is the skill gap between workers. He said that some employees become upset because they were not adequately trained for their job and are falling behind their coworkers with the quality of their work. Finally, Taylor talked about boosting workplace morale and having a code of ethics for managers to follow.

AFL-CIOBill Samuel, government affairs director of the AFL-CIO spoke with AWF on Sept. 26 about the Protect the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, and the U.S. Secretary of Labor. He said that the PRO Act is important because it ensures that workers rights are protected. The Act also shifts some power back to the workers to help them bargain for better contracts with their employers. Samuel talked about Eugene Scalia and how he has been anti-worker rights and how having him as the secretary of labor is a danger to workers. Lastly, he discussed the attempts to deregulate apprenticeship programs and how this would lower safety standards for apprenticeships, putting workers in danger while on the job.

AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc spoke about the United States Department of Labor new law to pay overtime to workers earning less than $35,000 a year.
