    these people are IN UNIFORM, the possibility of losing business is good enough to can every one of them. If they have to wait until the contract is up, whatever. Perfectly legal to state in the contract no political protests while in uniform.



    oh i'm sure the leftwing lawyers have something to say about it, ...it's corruption.



    When I fix ACs, I don't go to people's houses and talk politics.

    I would EXPECT to be fired for saying "Of course you don't understand the AC repair, you're a moonbat Democrat !"

    Maybe the next time I see a customer listening to the Democrats i'll stop fixing the AC and take a knee.



    Even when i drive home, off the clock, i avoid knocking people on their ass while i'm IN UNIFORM

    The idiot Raven's took a knee during the Steelers game and the fans booed them loudly.

    Well there's a lot of free speech. A company doesn't have to grant you free speech though, you're working for them and representing them and their values, rather than your own. Businesses have to follow rules too which can limit their free speech.

    However it's free speech in that their employers seem to accept it and the US govt can't stop it.

    The American people overwhelmingly disagree with you. They are not moonbat Trump supporters like you. They are in uniform but they are not working yet. They don't start work until the kickoff. You can be in uniform and talk to people before your shift starts. You have free speech rights to talk to a co-worker about anything as long as it does not violate any workplace rules such as sexual harassment.

    The fact is that these players are not knocking anyone. They have issues with certain aspects of this country and this is their way of making it known. The fact is that it was a few players before Trump gave you your marching orders. These protests are now about Trump. It is Trump supporters who want to violate the Constitution and they threaten the very foundation of this country.

    Players have a union and a contract .

    Nothing in the contact says they have to stand . The NBA union contract does gave that requirement.

    There's always an excuse for forgetting how important freedom of expression is.
