New York State Healthy Workplace Bill 2023

Who in this picture is on record opposing workplace bullying and mobbing? Who in this picture isn’t complicity with the bullying and mobbing that occurs? And so on … and so forth.

That opens the door to the question: Is there a Black-Lives-Don’t-Matter-Animus in the Hunter Department of Film and Media Studies?

Stay tuned.
