The Boss Is Remotely Monitoring Blue-Collar Workers

desdinova 216 Re:Well yeah (228 comments)

I live in a country where states are allowed to pass so-called "right to work" legislation and then fire people on the basis of those things, and as long as they do not admit this as the reason for the dismissal, it is perfectly legal. So you can see where I might have a problem with some of these statements you're making; You're operating under false assumptions -- they may be true where you live, but not where I live.

I believe whatyou're describing is "at will" employment, Right to work is usually related to union membership
