    Its just unbelievable how 'stuck' others can make your life........You want and need to make decisions but its a living hell waiting on others
    Unless you are self employed, or wealthy beyond belief, you are probably at the mercy of 'others' and their decisions.

    I am just at a loss....recent life feels like.....

    Blacklisting
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blacklisting

    A blacklist (or black list) is a list or register of entities or people, for one reason or another, are being denied a particular privilege, service, mobility, access or recognition. As a verb, to blacklist can mean to deny someone work in a particular field, or to ostracize a person from a certain social circle.

    Conversely, a whitelist is a list or compilation identifying entities that are accepted, recognized, or privileged.

    The term blacklisting may be used in a pejorative sense, implying that a person has been prevented from having legitimate access to something due to inappropriate covert actions of those who control access. For example, a person being served with a restraining order for having threatened another person would not be considered a case of blacklisting. However, somebody who is fired for exposing poor working conditions in a particular company, and is subsequently systematically blocked from finding work in that industry, is described as having been inappropriately and often illegally blacklisted. Blacklisting can and has been accomplished informally by consensus of authority figures, and does not necessarily require a physical list or overt written record.

    Blacklisting can be formal or informal. In the employment setting, applicants who apply to numerous positions regardless of being qualified or not can soon be ignored during some or all subsequent applicant processes. This can be an informal choice made by one person or a shared formal response taken up by one office, and not an issue that would be described as blacklisting. In the past, blacklists of union members have been shared or circulated between multiple organizations to prevent hiring of employees who, rather than being incompetent, have been critical of management actions. People have been prevented from working for decades due to being on a blacklist; in some cases the information on the blacklist was false

    The irony of being blacklisted for being critical of management decisions, is that the person being blacklisted may have actually had the company's interests more at heart than the management, who could have been incompetent, or, more concerned about this year's bonus than the survival of the company.

    This is a very accurate statement. I have been in management most of my working career and I can understand the frustration. The only time my boss really yelled at me was when I questioned his decision and suggested an alternative plan. No a good conversation but it taught me well. Everything has a price. If you want to go against the management, and even if you are right, or a whistle-blower as such, there is the price to pay. If you want to just sit back and wait, there is the price of frustration and time lost to pay. Who said it was going to be fair? No said it was going to be easy either. The OP said it best when he suggested that working for yourself might be a solution. But that has a price as well. Ask a farmer how many weeks paid vacation he got in the last 10 years? Bottom line, when you work for someone else, it's not your company, it's his. You are simply an agent of his.

    My mum had breast cancer last year and lost both her boobs, she had ray treatment and I think she developed emphysima because she coughs all the time now, I am worried about leaving her.

    She says she is fine all the time though I dont believe her.

    My brother died 5 years ago and was first death in the fam I ever experienced, I found out on facebook and it was the worst pain I felt, as soon as I found out mum was sick I came back. I would do it again in a heatbeat, my life isnt on hold, I still keep busy doing the things I love, looking after mum is one of them

    So, as a 'manager', you know then blacklisting is illegal as extortion, blackmail, defamation, retaliation is? Punishable by prison time and or fines? Then why as a 'manager' would you risk going to prison, paying lot of money in law suits or risk the company reputation just to satisfy your own ego? It must be real lonely and or extremely cut throat up there in mahogany row. For this reason, I have avoided management as a career, like the plague icon_redface.gif

    Sounds like 'Trumpism' or at least the typical capitalistic, kamikaze republican icon_confused.gif

    I can't help but detect a constant victimhood vibe by the OP. I notice this in quite a few of the posts that he starts.

    Dude,

    You're a little out there.
    I didn't even mention a political party.
    With the odds stacked against Obama,
    polls still indicate things IMPROVED? No? Not for you?

    Maybe you should do something else?

    50 cents is not a dollar.
    2 quarts is not a gallon.
    8 ounces is not a pound.
    A six inch penis is not a foot long.
    Obama's Mother is White so he's mixed race, not black.
