One of the biggest national newspapers, ‘Vedomosti’, conducted a telephone survey in which 1022 people gave their views on the subject ‘gays at the workplace’. 43% of those interviewed were against working with homosexuals. 7%, all female, like to work with gays and lesbians. Middle and upper level management participants were divided almost equally with 51% being uneasy and 49% comfortable working with homosexuals.
100% of workers don’t like gay co-workers but show no signs of it at work. Younger people, under 34, are more open and relaxed about the sexual preferences of their co-workers however those over 45 are against the situation.
