VOTE for the Worst Employer of 2023

It's the most wonderful time of the year. I've made my list. I've checked it twice. Now it's time to find out who's naughtiest and not very nice. It's voting time for The Worst Employer of 2023.

I've culled my list of 10 nominees down to the worst 7 as finalists. 

🗳️ The Child Labor Abuser — Food safety sanitation company employs more than 100 children to work in meat processing facilities, exposing them to dangerous chemicals and meat processing equipment

🗳️ The Pizza Shop Pressurizer — Pizza shop owner forcibly employs undocumented worker for over a decade through threats of deportation coupled with physical and verbal abuse

🗳️ The Defecation Denier — Supervisor forces sick employee to poo his pants at his workstation, and to continue working in soiled pants

🗳️ The Pretend Priest — Restaurant uses fake priest to coerce confessions from employees and uses the information to retaliate against them

🗳️ The Head Hunter — Nonprofit retaliates against employee who complained about its handling of donated body parts by leaving three severed heads at his desk

🗳️ The Cake Boss — HR manager writes "Eat a D*ck" on the inside lid of a box holding a penis-shaped cake delivered to an employee

🗳️ The Jack(a$$) in the Box — Fast-food franchisee's general manager subjects young female employees to horrific, persistent, and egregious acts of sexual harassment, including unwelcome touching and masturbating in front of one employee 

Like last year, I'm using Ranked Choice Voting to declare a winner.

How does Ranked Choice Voting work?

When voting, you'll rank each of the 7 finalists in order of awfulness. If one finalist receives more than 50% of first-choice votes, they are the winner. If, however, no finalist reaches a majority of first-choice votes, then counting will continue in rounds. At the end of each round, the finalist with the fewest votes is eliminated. If you ranked that finalist first, your vote will go to the next highest ranked finalist on your ballot. This process will continue until one finalist receives a majority of first-choice votes or when there are 2 finalists left, at which point the finalist with the most votes wins.

Voting will remain open until Dec. 13 at 11:59 pm eastern time.

Please share the ballot with your co-workers, friends, family members, and all over your social networks. I'll announce the winner (or loser, depending on your perspective) on Dec. 20.
