…at least insofar as it is actually practiced – which is, of course, not ‘employment at will’ but ‘unemployment per the will of the obnoxious executroid elite.’
From the Sun-Sentinel:
[O]range-shirted workers no longer have jobs at the Deerfield Beach law firm of Elizabeth R. Wellborn P.A.
The lie of currently-practiced ‘employment at will’ (an even bigger lie than ‘incremental progress’, but I digress) serves no beneficial societal purporse. In fact, it does nothing other than force taxpayers – via unemployment compensation – to subsidize the fits and whims of spoiled-brat management elite.
14 workers wearing orange shirts were called into a conference room, where an executive said he understood there was a protest involving orange, the employees were wearing orange, and they all were fired.
The executive said anyone wearing orange for an innocent reason should speak up. One employee immediately denied involvement with a protest and explained the happy-hour color.
The executives conferred outside the room, returned and upheld the decision: all fired, said Lou Erik Ambert, 31, of Coconut Creek, a litigation para-legal who said he was terminated.
“There is no office policy against wearing orange shirts. We had no warning. We got no severance, no package, no nothing,” said Ambert. “I feel so violated.”
Meloney McLeod, 39, of North Lauderdale, said her choice of shirt puts her in a tough spot: “I’m a single mom with four kids, and I’m out of a job just because I wore orange today.”
Let me revise my previous observation: The lie of currently-practiced ‘employment at will’ (an even bigger lie than ‘incremental progress’, but I digress) serves no beneficial societal purporse. In fact, it does nothing other than force taxpayers – via unemployment compensation, multi-pronged harm to children, future costs of taking care of those children who, when grown, may end up as public charges for any number of reasons (from health issues to incarceration), which might be traceable to a sudden, morally unjustifiable stoppage of the only source of income putting food in their mouths and a roof over their heads – to subsidize the fits and whims of useless, spoiled-brat management elite.
I wonder: How many of the self-important, management elite at Elizabeth R. Wellborn P.A. own stock in private prison corporations or other immoral corporate entities whose bottom lines benefit from societal misery created by America’s useless, self-important management elite?
