What is POLITICS IN COMPANIES and its consequences: It is the discrimination against professionals and the destruction of the skilled crafts-person or skilled labor. It is the buddy, buddy, neighbor, kinsfolk click system, not a system were the most qualified person gets the job. it is also the suck up move up system and in some cases the screw-up move up system, over the past 30 years I have seen this unfair promotion crap over 3 or 4 dozen times. This is unfair, discriminatory, demeaning and destructive to the effected employee and company.
