Lying. Backstabbing. Taking credit for other’s work. Even flirting with the boss. A recent Harris Interactive study illustrates that there’s a rising trend of people who are so desperate to keep their jobs that they are willing to blur the ethical line.

According to the study, 28% of respondents stated they would act immorally or unethically to keep their jobs. And the younger workers were the ones that were the most willing to be ruthless: nearly 40% of employees aged 18 to 34 said they would be dishonest to save their jobs, while only 28% of respondents overall indicated they would lie.

How far would you go to save your job? How do you feel about those who use less than ethical means in order to hang on to their job?

I wouldnt want to work for an unethical company. What they will do to someone else, they will eventually do it you, and it will come back full force. Unfortunately,not many people are successful by keeping their nose clean.
