Why is it that when a large and seemingly well run company sells out to a shark said shark sets out to systematically ruin what has worked so well. The profits are already something that rivals can only strive to emulate. So why is it necessary to ruin peoples' lives, squashing anyone who doesn't toe the line. Someone who works hard, is diligent and intelligent - someone who merely questions certain practices which the new owners have put into place for which he is bullied and threatened. This company and particularly the self satisfied HR department show absolutely no empathy whatsoever for an employee of nearly 5 years, whose work never comes into question and whose partner - me - has been and still is, going through very worrying times healthwise including chemo - the first chemo is tomorrow. Why am I writing about this on my art blog you may wonder - well the reason is this - Frustration. Over the last 2 years I've been fighting for my health and sanity and to have to watch my kind and gentle man be pushed to his absolute limits by a bully as big as this company is making me more ill than I already am. Watching him slump unable to utter a word because he's been to that horrible place in St Julians called his office makes me want to lash out. To think that he has wanted to work for this company for the last 12 years and this is how it treats him makes me want to vomit.Unfortunately like many other ordinary workers we're pretty powerless so any noise I can make however small may - just may help him and others.
We're only here once we should be enjoying it.
