ITUC General Secretary Sharan Burrow said: “This is a list of exploitation, indecent working conditions, outsourcing, unsafe business practices, low pay and anti-union intimidation. It’s a hard choice to pick the worst, but make your vote now.

“The ITUC will do all it can to call out the abusive practices of bad bosses, end corporate greed and work to protect the rights of working people.”

The winner of the international vote will join the exclusive list of previous bad bosses: Jeff Bezos (Amazon) in 2014, Michael O’Leary (Ryanair) in 2018.
