Elizabeth had been working diligently at her job for about ten months. It was her second ‘real’ job and she was gaining new skills and confidence. Ostensibly it was her political views, but other factors like envy and jealousy made her subject to slander and calumny with the goal being to prevent her from being given more responsibility at the workplace.
