Griping About Your Boss May Actually Get You Somewhere

June 16, 2006 ( - While complaining about your boss to your co-workers or family is often fruitless, one group has come up with a way for venting to pay off.
Working America, an affiliate of the AFL-CIO, is sponsoring “My Bad Boss Contest” this summer, which calls for workers to post horror stories about their bosses. The winner of the contest receives a one-week vacation.

Visitors to the site can also vote on which story they think is the best . The contest will first generate five semifinalists. The winner of the grand prize will be based on the votes cast during the final round of voting, which begins July 26.

Entrants cannot reveal the name of the company or the boss. For more information or to enter a story go here .
