    How many people are inconvenienced when they are messing around on the phone, eating, putting on makeup and get in a car crash?

    Niners are 0 and 5 and Kapernick is unemployed.

    Poetic justice.

    You boss can't make you do anything...you are free to quit on a moments notice


    But if you are willing to put up with anything for the money, the sky is the limit

    This is great a great thing Jerry Jones is pushing with this anthem pride thing. People are realizing I can make it a condition of employment folks listen to NPR all day, have to prostrate themselves to Mecca, and we can only imagine what else.

    Go America?

    Oh, please.

    None of my employees do that because I make them



    It is all their own decision.

    What can your boss make you do? Well nothing!

    The question should be what are you willing to do for money?

    Nothing. This is a free country and you are not a slave. If the boss tells you to do anything you don't want to do, you can simply quit.

    As to the First Amendment....it does not apply at your place of work. It is only a restraint on the government.

    Then look at the way it's actually happening in the NFL. NFL produces entertainment. THey have a corporate formula for putting on their events at each franchise on game day. Boss can control, produce and orchestrate what happens at each performance. Just asking you not to PROTEST and change the tone and feeling of the production. Not TELLING you to believe in America and it's people. Just wants the script executed and performed a certain way and to focus on your job.

    YOU --- changing your corporate handbook to require folks to toss darts at a pic of Trump as they clock in -- is PROBABLY perfectly legal. But if someone decides to pull his own dart board and it has Schumer on it, you're gonna have to fire the person and make the case that this exercise had VALUE to your company to use the Trump dart board.

    I think when employers just get nasty for the sake of PERSONAL biases and peeves, it could always be challenged if it has no RELATED VALUE to the work product.

    Yes, you can do all of this, but they can quit.
