At work, discussion of politics best avoided
A reader asks the Job Doc: I enjoy following politics. However, I have several colleagues who are very outspoken about their political beliefs and favorite candidates. I was brought up to believe you kept this information private. My mother would not even disclose how she voted to family. Why do workplaces not respect this as a private decision? How do I voice my concerns without offending others? I am not looking forward to the fall.
