Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about feeling caged: The workplace has degenerated to a hate filled environment and is psychologically damaging everyone there.
I am a passenger screener at a northern Ontario airport. We aren’t not continuously busy. There is a lot of downtime between flights. Our supervisor instituted an employee lockdown in the Preboard Screening Room in between flights. We literally look like caged animals or fish inside a fishbowl to all other airport employees and passengers. This lockdown came about at the end of May 2006. We sit in this glass bubble for approximately 5 hours per shift. We can only read work related material, which becomes redundant after about half an hour. We read the same stuff over and over again and again.
