    No one should have to work with a jerk - By Molly Selvin, Los Angeles Times
    Bosses are really mean these days, or employees are really thin-skinned.

    Lawmakers across the U.S. are considering legislation that would give workers grounds to sue their superiors for being, basically, jerks.

    Bookstores are stocking bad-boss advice tomes, including 'Snakes in Suits' and 'Was Your Boss Raised by Wolves?' The AFL-CIO even has an online contest that takes entries for the worst boss in the country.
