Recent Articles

I have written some recent articles that aren't related to student loan debt, and wanted to share them with all of you here.

The first one is about the way in which publicists are bullied, and the second one is a an interview I had with author Cullen Thomas. Thomas is the author of a fascinating book, Brother One Cell, about the time he spent in prison in S. Korea.

Nice work, Cryn. Bullying is horrible and we oftentimes fail to remember that this happens in the adult world, too. I think that especially in this economy, as companies are tightening their belts, the cutthroat nature of the workplace is getting worse and more people are being subjected to brutal treatment from their bosses and coworkers.

There are several people close to me who are going through this and it's worse than people think. I thought to myself, "Surely, this treatment is against the law." One person I know spoke to a lawyer because it's so bad. This person was basically told that since they work in a "right to work" state (a.k.a. right for employers to abuse their employees), this person had no legal leg to stand on. In a normal economy, someone would find a new job... but try doing that these days.
