National Workplace Bullying Press Conference in Washington DC at the National Press Club

Held on October 15th 2012

This past Monday I had the opportunity to speak at the National Workplace Bullying press conference in Washington DC.  I was honored to have been invited to attend and speak at the prestigious event conducted by Dr. Gary Namie “The President of Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI).”

Dr. Namie is heading a National Healthy Workplace Bill to help ensure that one day there will be healthier workplaces throughout this country is indeed achieved.  The bill in is presently in 21 states and it is called “The Healthy Workplace Bill.”  With the help of Dr. Namie and so many hardworking advocates all across this country, one day with great anticipation we will see this bill, placed into law.  Of course this this cannot be achieved without the help from our politicians.

I sit here today 48 hours later from this exhausting trip, feeling to reward for my historical contribution to this very important cause.  I had the opportunity talk about what Verizon had done to me, and so many other employees.  I spoke about the truths if how we all have suffered ruthless and unacceptable attacks from this unethical company.  I could never tell 8.5 years of living hell, in 5 – 10 minutes time but I tried to highlight the facts.  The video will be posted on YouTube shortly and I will release it as well.  Future interviews, conferences and other post will continue as I move forward in this cause.   

After you leave such an event, and head back home on an 8 hour train ride home, you have so much time to think.  I thought about what I had said, and wished I could say more.  I thought about the stories that I have heard, and shed more tears for these victims who are in so much pain.  I thought about the people that I had sat with, only to know they suffer internally to an extent no person on earth can truly define.  I thought about the ones that had so much courage and leadership to say I will suffer no more abuse at work and refused to no longer tolerate these abusive behaviors any longer.

I thought about coming back home knowing there will be piles of bills that cannot be possibly paid because of the loss of my income at Verizon.  I thought about my health eroding from inside, and I have tirelessly fight for justice.  Total destruction of my life, because I did what I was supposed to, and was to stand up to injustice at VERIZON, and then I became a target for doing God’s work.

I thought about life and what it now means to so many. 

During that day in Washington DC, as I sat there watching so many people that day.  As they walked by me at the train station, on the train, on the streets, in their cars, working, I saw very few smiles.  I saw very few people loving what they did, or were they were going.  How many people become robots of life, just synchronized into just going about life!

How many of those people I saw with my eyes in 24 hours, have suffered from hostile work environments, being bullied, harassed at work or other inappropriate behaviors at all.  How many hate the jobs or wish they could love what they do. 

Monday’s conference on workplace bullying issues was simply an historical event.  I believe that advocates fighting for this healthy workplace bill are people with tremendous heart and courage.  They know the future of our children lives in the chosen career fields depend on these hard working advocates, to set in motion a protection that ensures a safer and healthier workplace.

May God continue to give them all the strength it takes to defeat evil and restore one’s life and dignity in the workplace?

As Verizon would say: Making Progress Every Day!

 

“The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”
