    Ah thanks. So it is 55 out of 117 respondents who agree with me. I stand corrected. I wonder if that correction makes that 47+% 'very few'?

    I have already explained why.

    You don't agree...I don't much care.


    Good day.
    Good counterpoint.

    You are fired, because you put on a harness, and didn't fall off that wind turbine- because it took you 45 seconds longer than the new hire who doesn't care about falling to his/her doom. This is America, free market, yeah.
    This type of system leads to unions and laws restricting employers based on actual employee rights.

    Health and safety laws would still apply...no rights would be violated.

    And simply have federal laws that are not union friendly - or unfriendly. Not all unions are bad, just too many or when laws allow them to be too powerful are bad.

    They can fire them for ANY reason, imo.

    But while they are working for them, they cannot knowingly violate health/safety laws.

    And they can't knowingly violate anti-discrimination laws (especially applicable to companies that hold government contracts).

    So you think it should be legal to fire someone for any reason, except when it is illegal. I agree. You win the debate, you are really good at this.

    Ahhh, no.

    Obviously, you change the anti-discrimination laws to allow firing's for any reason, but not the health and safety laws.

    I assumed that was obvious...apparently not.

    Oh. Sure, if we change the law, that is fine. I found someone who doesn't agree with you.

    Good day.
    I agree with your literal interpretation of that concept. I also believe that labor should be able to quit on that same basis; even if our current regime must be changed in favor of something that is more market friendly. Unemployment compensation could be funded through general taxes on Firms for simplification and cost reduction.

    You want to know what employee rights should be?

    - The employee should expect the employer to provide a reasonably safe work environment or at least to advise the employee of what the known existing hazards are so that the employee can chose whether to assume that risk when he/she accepts the job.

    - The employee should expect the employer to provide the salary and benefits as he agreed with the employee at the time the job was offered and the employee accepted.

    - The employee should expect policies for the benefit of the employee to be enforced as they existed when the employee accepted the job.

    That's pretty much it.
