" The political climate is putting all employers on high alert when it comes to the words and behavior of their employees, Sinnreich says. “We’re understood to be private citizens, but when someone is the public face of a public corporation, that corporation should and must be held accountable for the actions of that individual,” he added."
Before everyone celebrates what happened to Roseanne, remember it can happen to you.
Unlike just a couple of decades ago, when you voiced opinions only heard by family and friends, now they become global. And your job is definitely on the line.
That sucks. Its not the Free America I was raised in. We should (in self defense) demand a separation from employment and personal life. They shouldn’t be allowed to affect each other.
Look at it this way. People who commit crimes but want to rejoin society should be allowed to, not let their past prevent future employment. The same principle here, not let private excercise of free speech cause loss of livlihood.
Of course I will be smear as usual. But remember, now may be the only time you could have stood up, and prevented what happened to Roseanne, happens to you express what seems like a reasonable opinion, but some nutball is offended and demands you be impoverished if not killed.
