               “Bullying behavior doesn’t end when childhood ends”

          "It all seems so…wrong. Bizarre, even. But here it is: The perils of being bullied don’t                          end with the arrival of adulthood. In fact, adults are just as susceptible as kids to                                  being bullied."

          "Society is becoming more aware of bullying in all aspects of our world – everywhere from                  school to online. We are recognizing that bullying can be found in many different situations.                Workplace bullying has also become a more common topic of discussion, with estimates                    suggesting that somewhere between 25 and 50% of the workforce has been subject to some            form of bullying in the workplace. Nearly half of the working population has witnessed it at                  some point.  Workplace bullying can take many forms and is generally intentional."

              “Bullying: A crime of the present as well as the past”

              By: Perly Viasmensky Wednesday, 29 June 2011

              http://www.lasvegastribune.com/index.php? option=com_content&view=article&id=1952:bullying-a-crime-of-the-present-aswell- as-the-past&catid=149:perly-viasmensky&Itemid=220

          "Bullying is not confined to schoolchildren only. There is an unbelievable number of adult                    victims of bullies in the workplace. There is a great number of office managers and supervisors          who enjoy humiliating, intimidating and verbally abusing employees when they know that the              victim of their abuse is in great need of the job they are performing and cannot afford the luxury          of slashing back. The problem with those so-called people in power is that their superiority                  complex does not allow them to realize that they are nothing but uneducated individuals who              made it to a higher position through a quirk of fate, luck or marriage. Deep inside they know                that the other person is superior to them and they hate to admit it. Other times they are doing            to the people under them what someone else did to them and they were forced, back then, to            bite their tongue and keep their mouth shut. Now, they are “free” to bully and don’t hold back.”
