Additionally, the war was costing taxpayers well over twenty billion dollars each year, and roughly one hundred U.S. soldiers--and an untold number of Vietnamese--were being killed per week (Page and Brody 1972).

Journal of Vocational Behavior - Organizational Politics, Job Attitudes, and Work Outcomes: Exploration and Implications for the Public Sector

The relationship between perception of organizational politics, job attitudes, and several other work outcomes was examined among 303 public sector employees in Israel. Perception of organizational politics was found to have had a negative relationship with job attitudes (e.g., job satisfaction and organizational commitment), a positive relationship with intention to leave the organization (exit), and a stronger positive relationship with negligent behavior (neglect). It is suggested that public personnel will tend to react to workplace politics with negligent behavior rather than by leaving.
