    The only way i would agree is if the employer is holding a gun to the employees heads. If not, then go find another job.

    ANYONE, can break rules or laws, including employees. This does not mean that they do not have those rights, which is exactly what you wrote.
    If something can be taken from you, that something is not a right.

    People shouldn't have to feel they have to get a new job if they disagree with something at work.

    You don't believe in taxation or regulation, per your post I quoted, ergo, you're an anarchist.

    I cant help peoples feelings. If a job has a policy in place you dont like, you either deal with it or find another job. You can dispute it and say you dont like it. Your employer can say "my way or the highway".

    For one thing, they are not 'rights,' they are protections. Didnt you write that earlier?

    And you have a right to life, that doesnt mean it cant be taken from you. Illegally/unfairly, or even legally in some cases. Certainly we can take the right to liberty when someone is convicted of a crime.

    When people's rights...or protections...are unfairly infringed on, they DO have recourse. As I even gave an example of.

    Nope, you are guessing here. I can fire them for any legal reason I like, and once they've pissed me off it's a matter of time till they are gone. I'm not going to fire a reservist for being deployed, but if he misses a shift by 1.5 minutes when in he is late, goodbye.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
