____________Work & Travel___________
Hello to everybody reading this message! My name is Roxana Nistor, a Romanian student that will be fulfilling the 3rd year of Work and Travel Program in the US.
The story goes like this: many of my friends and I have suffered because of the bullies we had to work with so I’ve decided to see the dimensions and forms of bullying and mobbing in the US. My final goal is to compare the rates with the ones in our own countries, considering our Work&Travel experience as students.
Thank you to all of you who decided to invest 10 minutes into this study and help me achieve answers to my questions related to the subject. Have a great summer in the US!

Mobbing is a term used to describe a variety of behaviors in the workplace in terms of emotional or physical ABUSE. The word is used when a group of workers or a single worker engages in this hostile behavior, making life difficult for someone on the job ON PURPOSE. The mobbing actors can be colleagues, superiors or subordinates, and this behavior can affect workers in businesses of all sizes, including at smaller companies.
