Behaviors that would be punishable in "the real world" are accepted and endured in the workplace. The tight job market has made things worse since employers know they can get away with unacceptable behaviors. Nasty emails, demeaning remarks, and unrealistic demands are now the norm in many companies. Prerequisites for jobs require individuals to be available for unreasonable hours and to be capable of "multi-tasking" (otherwise known as doing more work than they get paid for). The workplace is evolving to become a chamber of horrors with few options for recourse for the mistreated worker.
