Ever been bullied at work? If so, you’re not close to being alone.
A new survey by job-search site CareerBuilder found that 28 percent of U.S. employees have experienced bullying at work. The employees most likely to feel bullied on the job are the disabled, with 44 percent of people with disabilities reporting that they have been the victim of such behavior, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers (30 percent).
By gender, women are more likely to experience workplace bullying, with roughly a third reporting such incidents, compared with 22 percent of men. Perhaps not surprisingly, a greater share of lower-paid and less-educated workers say they have been bullied than higher-income employees — 28 percent of those earning less than $50,000 a year say they have been bullied, versus 19 percent for people making more than that amount.
