If he did I think it only fair that he also lose his job.

Kind of late but, freedom of speech includes freedom pf expression.

Cvil disobedience, demonstration, protest and gestures also.

Except i guess when its the Fuhrer's motorcade.

(now makes that other salute as Trumps limo passes)

Sich Heil!

Freedom of speech only applies to the government, not private entities.

Nope.

Let's not forget the emotions on both sides when Phil Robertson was fired from A&E for his comments in a magazine. Just like then and just like now, your employer can decide what they see fit as a representative of their company. Disagree with it or not, that's the way it is.

And in that context, I don't think anyone on either side needs to have any opposite feelings than they did over that mess. If you were for him being yanked off the air, then you're for her being fired. And vice-versa. Let's not make this a left/right issue.

The problem is that many idiots don't read the companies policy.

This woman needs to worry more about burning a few more calories on her bike.
😮

What in the ever blazing hell does that have to do with anything ?
That speaks way more about your character than the issue being discussed.

Not much, just an observation that she needs to peddle harder.

So she was fired for flipping Trump the bird in her own time.

Doesn't seem like she should be fired to me.



Virginia is at will employment, they can fire her for pretty much any reason they want.


Also terms and conditions from most employers dictate a certain code of conduct which must be followed, and flipping the president the bird and making yourself known for it will breach those conditions in any state, any employer for that matter, I heard of people getting fired from McDonalds for stupid behavior outside of work.

I'm not one of those stockholm syndrome victims who embraces my enslavement but I know a stupid move when I see one. Now she is in search of new employment, to be honest it should be easy now that she is semi-famous for flipping Don the bird, a ton of Democrat supporters will be willing to give her a job...hopefully for her lol.

Trump is not the issue here. No matter who the prez is they still would have sacked her. Government contractor remember.
If it happened during working hours, then sure. She is reflecting badly on her employer. If she was in off hours, it's nobody's #ing business unless she is actively identifying as an employee of that company. It's not like she's indentured or something.

Lots of "But what about free speech!"

The AGE OLD "slippery slope" type deal.

*ZZZZZ*

Have fun!

Only if he made it his Facebook and Twitter profile pics, like she did.

Sounds reasonable to me.

Would you say the same for that punk who got caught rioting in Vancouver after the hockey game? He lit that car up on fire while off the clock and did not identify with his employer while doing so. He didn't even admit to it and someone ratted him out via Facebook.

In this current day and age your actions outside of work will probably reflect on your employer. There's a ton of local town folk who get off on ratting people out on stuff like this in every city , I know a few myself...

That's why you read the policy book that the company gives you, if you don't understand it then ask HR and they will tell you.
