Psycho Bosses Depressed Workers

Being a wage slave under capitalism doesn't just kill it is also depressing......
"About half a million Canadian workers experience depression, and most say it interferes with their ability to manage their jobs, Statistics Canada reported Friday.
Data from 2002 showed almost four per cent of workers between the ages of 25 and 64 reported being depressed in the previous 12 months before the survey
Job-related factors associated with depression included:
* Night shifts.
* Non-regular hours.
* Work stress.
The prevalence of depression was relatively high among workers who spent fewer than 30 hours on the job. It was lower among those who worked more than 40 hours."
Of course workers are depressed when they are forced into working two jobs just to make ends meet. And of course they can't manage their jobs because the bosses are all psychos.
"Millions of harassed workers could have their worst fears confirmed about their bosses thanks to a new test to weed out the 'corporate psycho'.
You may already suspect that your boss's smooth, charming exterior masks a sadistic control freak with a penchant for violence.
Professor Hare estimates that 1% of the general population in North America are psychopaths.
The professor believes that psychopath's cold-blooded ability to manipulate others without remorse, coupled with a veneer of charm and high energy can make them extremely successful in many walks of life.
They could be perfectly qualified for top posts in the military, politics or in huge multi-national companies as history has already shown in one notorious case.
Former Daily Mirror tycoon Robert Maxwell, who made off with the newspaper's pension fund, was named as a classic example of a man in a powerful position who might very well have displayed psychopathic traits."
Which may explain why so many bosses are criminal capitalists.
