People getting fired is on my mind, so I posted this comment on Phil's and DDS's recent employment posting on the Very Serious site:

Did you all hear about the Whole Foods worker in NY who got fired for TRYING (as in attempted!) to eat a sandwich that was supposed to go in the trash?

Not being in a union or living in another country, the worker did not have a right to his job. Absent of race/gender discrimination, most workers can be fired for any reason in this country. The horrible thing about the WF worker is that his employer tried to block unemployment benefits over the trash eating incident. Obscene!

I think people should have more rights in employment. I think bosses should have to prove there’s a good reason to fire someone. I think tenure should be easier. Don’t UPS drivers get over probation in 6 months or something? Why so long for educators? Not fair.

Nice sister. Well when it comes to employee rights and unfair labor practices, you can really talk some trash! I guess that's better than eating it.
