Who’s the boss this Sunday night? It won’t be Mayor Bill Peduto on your TV set. That’s because he’ll be featured on the CBS Emmy-winning show “Undercover Boss.” The show takes a company owner or upper-level executive and disguises them so that they can become a “new hire” and experience firsthand what’s really happening among the rank-and-file workers. Typically, they take on physically strenuous job positions (which is where the fun comes in) and outstanding workers are rewarding by the show’s end.
