Speak Saturdays: Toxic Work Environment

Oxford Dictionary defines toxic as “very harmful or unpleasant in a pervasive or insidious way.” News coverage has been following the Frito Lay strike. Workers are demanding better work environment and a livable wage.

Have you ever worked in a toxic environment? How did you handle it? Were the problems ever resolved? I’ve had toxic moments in the work place. I understand why people walk away from jobs.

I shouldn’t be shocked but it still amazes me that companies won’t pay people a living wage. People spend most of their time at the workplace. While working does come with its own stress, people shouldn’t be worried about being overworked and underpaid.

Have you been following the strike? If not, read about it here: https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/23/us/frito-lay-strike-topeka-kansas-trnd/index.html
