Hi again, Jaime and thanks for your insightful question.
I feel there was not as much tension in the workplace in the 1950's versus today's work environment. There was more love and harmony and more regard for our fellow men/women in our work environment in the 1950's than today. The 1950's was a 'feel good' era, due to just coming out of WWII and it was part of the baby boomer era, as well. People were happier in general, most men worked, while many wifes/mothers stayed at home and were full-time homemakers. One thing that can be compared and contrasted as a very important and significant item in the workplace of the 1950's as opposed to the workplace of today is the pay scale and treatment of women.
Women were paid significantly less and mainly had jobs such as secretaries and were typically not found in the 'top management' strata of most companies. Also, quite often, some male bosses took for granted that female employees were there to serve them and not just to take steno and type letters. Some female employees felt that if they didn't go along with the boss, that they would lose their jobs, so they did some things they would be ashamed of. I don't think there was 'more' sin in the workplaces of the 1950's, but in my opinion, this would certainly define what you would call 'sin' in your question.
In the workplace of today, women hold high positions, such as CEO, CFO and Presidents of companies. Employment laws are in place to prevent discrimination involving minorities and women. Sexual harassment is against employment laws, whether it involves a man harassing a woman or vice versa. While, on the whole, women are making much more today than in the 1950's, there is still a disparity in many corporations, where women still make less than men for doing the same job.
Due to fierce competition, general economic conditions, and higher unemployment rates today, the workplace is much more 'cut-throat' than in the 1950's. Unscrupulous employees would not think twice about selling out their fellow employees, if it would get them ahead. 'Whistleblowers' are on the rise and are rewarded for bringing something untoward to the attention of the authorities and/or the company. This is not a bad thing, but in contrast with the workplace of the 1950's, in that era, employees would not choose to become a whistleblower, for fear of not being believed and losing their jobs.
I hope this covered what you were asking about.
