    That cashier would have to air his politics to such an extent that his presence became nearly as great as a CEO's, at which point I would say to the cashier, "Dude, what the hell."

    You're the one being the least objective.

    It's fine if he wants to support certain political issues, regardless of how unpalatable. It's also the right of the company to fire him. But it is nutbar to claim it's all fair, good and equitable. The sensitivity needle is WAY too high for public image anymore.

    Personal life, should be just that "personal", as long as it doesn't interfere with business.
    You're asking the wrong question. The real question is should customers be allowed to care about those things?

    You don't seem to understand that CEOs are required to disclose non-criminal personal information in the hiring process. You're still ignoring context and pretending a CEO is the same as a cashier.

    Any company that does not require full personal disclosure from a CEO is moronic and will soon go broke.

    Oh, you meant the other part. I never intend to use absolutes. Even if I use a word that is an absolute, exceptions are presumed. I don't believe in absolutes.

    If the shareholders lost discernible profit as a result, then it's something considerable. I personally would not care enough about one CEO's slight political leaning. I don't like FOX News's position on many issues, I still watch them for overall coverage, because CNN is fanatical about tragedies.
