HR Survey Says: Majority of U.S. Workers think their Bosses are Dishonest

“A majority of U.S. workers do not think their bosses are honest, said a survey released on Tuesday, and one in four would fire their boss if they could,” reports Ellen Wulfhorst, writing for Reuters.  The survey found that “53 percent of workers do not think their boss is honest, a similar number do not think their boss is fair or patient and two-thirds do not think their boss is loyal.”

The survey was done not by some labor union looking for ways to organize new members, but rather by the Adecco Group, a human resources and recruiting firm.

Even keeping in mind that a public opinion survey is a group snapshot subject to a margin of error, this is cannot be seen as a healthy assessment on the state of American employment relations.
