Here at CAREEREALISM, we’ve been watching the drama unfold around the, Live! With Kelly & Michael show. Today marks the second day Kelly Ripa has not shown up for work. She’s boycotting, due to the fact she was told just moments before going on-air that her co-host was leaving to take a bigger role at Good Morning America.
What If You Boycotted Your Job?
I think most of us know failing to show up to work because we were upset a co-worker got a promotion wouldn’t end well. Employers pay us to do a job. They don’t have to tell us everything that’s going on. More importantly, as we teach here at CAREEREALISM – every job is temporary. People move on. While it’s nice to be told in advance that your co-worker is leaving, it’s pretty common for people to keep the news quiet until it’s official.
What Do You Think? Will This Damage Her Career?
Our question to all of you is: Will Ripa’s decision to be a no-show hurt her career? Cast your vote and then share your thoughts with us on Twitter at @CAREEREALISM and use the hashtag #RipaGate!
