The day has finally arrived. It’s time to announce the Worst Employer of 2018.
To remind you, we had four finalists in contention for this … (dis)honor:

- The Sexist, Racist, Xenophobic, Oh My! — plant manager calls foreign-born employees “terrorists” and women “bitches,” and tells the only black employee that her husband should work in a cotton field with a rope around his neck.
- The Supervisor Supremacist — supervisor begins morning staff meetings by saying “White Power” and giving the Nazi salute; when African-American employee complains, he finds himself hanged in effigy.
- The Tasering Torturer — company owner disciplines employee by threatening to kill him, lighting fires near him, and repeatedly shocking him with a taser.
The final vote wasn’t close. The winner tallied an astounding 62% of all first place votes.
