Bullying in the workplace is rampant in the United States and has increased as workers' jobs become more threatened by the economic crash. Supervisors (most often women) bully talented underlings that threaten them, store managers bully competitors on their job track, military officers bully the newly enlisted, and unethical groups of tenured professors bully adjuncts, . People who bully are often sociopaths who are used to preying on the unsuspecting and gentle people around them. To increase their status and power, bullies spread lies about, ostracize and secretly and publicly attack their chosen victims. There are 12,000,000 sociopaths in the United States, and they blend into the workplace as they stab co-workers in the back----often leading the co-worker to lose his/her job. Adult victims of bullying are scarred for life and even commit suicide. The bullies often organize others to participate as a group that mobs and deeply traumatizes the bullied worker. Bullying makes victims sick, so bullying raises the cost of sick days and medical care and lowers productivity of all workers who participate. Bullying leaves deep scars on psyche of the victims.Bullies were often the bully in their own family, and they learned their bullying tactics at home first. Other countries have passed national laws against bullying in the workplace. In the United States anti-bullying programs are dependent upon each workplace, so if there is a group in power that doesn't want an anti-bullying policy to be designed and enforced, the entire job-site is left open to a bullying free-for-all. State legislatures and governors have been neglectful of passing anti-bullying laws, and the federal government has ignored the issue too. Please sign this petition to make our workplaces safe from bullying sociopaths!

If 10,000 people who sign get 10 of their friends to sign, we will get the 100,000 signatures that will impress our legislators, sentors, governors, and the President to act on our call to write the laws to stop bullying nationwide. Once these laws are passed and implemented, our country will join ranks with the other civilized nations who have already done the same.
