Personal Standards in the Work Place

Post by HillgrassBluebillyFTW »

Gripe 1: So, I've been asked twice now to change a picture from a couple or person of color to a "white" person or "white" couple. Given the bullsh*t line that it's what "the customer wanted." Which is funny because the only person making the changes is the friggin sales representative.


Gripe 2: A "Street Preacher" sends in weekly ads with his translation of bible verses. This goes against my personal believe that I don't want to be preached at.. that if I wanted to learn this stuff that I'd seek it out. So who do you think has to type all of it? YEAH.. ME.


So today's Street Preacher ad talks about God telling someone to smite someone who doesn't believe in him.

"slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass."

So, I tell my boss I don't want to type it. I tell her this goes against my own personal beliefs and standards.. and she says "deal with it."

Your personal beliefs aren't making money for the company.

I would buy that working for a huge gigantic corporation where I'm a number. But I work in a shitass town newspaper...

Oh, and get used to Account Executives who make bone-head requests. If it makes them money you will do it or some else will.

Then go out an do some sinning if it makes ya feel better.

they have a weekly religious column because the people who buy/read the newspaper indicate on questionaires that they want it. Are you in CC? Because in Fort Wayne the advertising firms and media outlets are very conscious to use people of color in their advertising and media presentations. From a pure dollar perspective, both make sense. Bunch of rednecks in a county with a very small minority population don't want ads with persons of color in them. Bigger, somewhat more enlightened city of Fort Wayne with a large minority population expect and (mostly) desire ads that feature a diversity of ethnicity.

he'd get fired.

this goes the other way too. My company is one division of a huge multi-national corporation. I'm on the philanthropy committee at work and we have a tight budget to work with and vaery strict no political, no religious policy for funding decisions. Last year, the corporate chiefs in Chicago gave away more than our entire budget to a political organization that I completely disagree with. I was pissed off about it, but not much I can do.

Though I agree with your concern, Ando, I have to agree with the majority on your action taken.

You are being paid (despite how well or how poorly) to leave the majority of your opinions at the door and use the ones that are of value to your employer. They apparently value your artistic opinion since you do artwork and design, but you're not employed to make political, religious, or personal evaluations. You're paid to make artistic evaluations and to perform delegated tasks.

I have learned this one the hard way.
