Slacker and Steve - OPP: Racist, Sexist Boss (Audio)

March 23, 2017

Today's OPP is from Crystal:

 

Yi! I have a serious problem with my current boss. I was a stay-at-home mom for several years but my husband and I really needed a second income and this job opportunity came along and I couldn't pass it up. My problem is I can't stand my boss!! He is a racist, sexist, ignorant homophobe. I'm the first woman he's ever hired and it shows. He is constantly saying very offensive things about people of different races and sexual preferences. He demeans his clients of different backgrounds behind their backs. He also constantly talks down to me and makes me feel incompetent. Everything that comes out of his mouth is offensive. I've tried telling him that but he disagrees. He's old and stubborn as all hell. I don't know what to do. Maybe if I had thicker skin I could handle it, or maybe if I was just as ignorant, but I'm not and it's really starting to affect me. I come home cranky and ready to cry. It's not fair to my family. But I can't just quit because we really need the money. I can't find a new job because I lack the knowledge/experience to land another job in this pay range and with this schedule. I just don't know what to do. He's breaking my spirit. Does anyone have any advice at all? HELP!!! 

Thanks,

Crystal

Slacker and Steve - OPP: Racist, Sexist Boss 3/23

We’ve all worked for at least one bad boss. Today’s OPP is no different, but her boss is probably one of the worst ever…and she can’t quit her job. Hear her OPP and tell her how to deal with her horrible boss!
