Bad Bosses Beware: Minnesota whistleblower takes on issue of workplace bullying
By Jessica Lussenhop, Minneapolis City Pages, May 16, 2012
Joe Henry hated his boss so much, he would’ve preferred his old Army drill sergeant. “A drill sergeant is consistently one way,” he says. “You know you’re going to get yelled at no matter what.”

He served a seven-month tour locating weapons caches and maintaining communications lines. A fellow vet remembers Henry as a reliable soldier — steady under the sound of constant gunfire.

Targets pay with their health, jobs, careers. A Gary Namie podcast.
