I found out that someone who worked for one of my previous employers committed suicide. It is a shame that this company could care less about their employees.
Working employees into the ground, wrongful terminations, and a culture of fear where people are cast out is an unconscionable act.
That is the problem with corporations. They create this culture where employees are terrified to speak out about their illness. They create cultures where there is no one to reach out to in a time of need. People are too busy conforming to the corporate robotic machine to give a flying f**k about anyone but themselves.
I got canned, and maybe 1% of my friends from work (I use that term very, very loosely) reached out to see how I am doing. Needless to say, they are not friends, and only you can support and save yourself.
Again discrimination against mental illness is illegal. How many people even know that? Obviously not ignorant, testosterone-infused companies.
