I was raised to respect others regardless of status, rank or seniority. I have always valued that in others. I have mostly been blessed with incredible bosses who have valued their staff.
Fox 13, Seattle, reported the Washington State House directed that Rep. Jesse Young (R-26th) have “very limited direct contact” with his staff after he demonstrated a “pattern of hostile and intimidating behavior,” calling staff “stupid” and telling them to “Shut the f*** up.”
Having your peers determine you abuse your own staff is pretty condemning. I fear we’ve all had “that boss.” Knowing how he treats his subordinates, Jesse Young is decidedly not “our voice of reason.”
