[why is it ok for business to be heartless/soul-less and fire managers mid-season and foreclose on homes but it's morally wrong for an employee to give em the finger and say I'm gone?
This is inspired by vinsanity from the Riggleman resigning thread. It has become a pet peeve of mine to hear the use of terms such as "team", "partners", and "associates" used by companies when you know it's a one way relationship. You're a member of that sacred group of buzzwords until it's more profitable for the company break that relationship.
Call it what it is, a business relationship, instead of trying to make it sound all fuzzy and warm.
It's called employment at will.
And baseball managers get fired at midseason because their teams are performing below expectations (a few exceptions withstanding).
And no one is that other thread is saying that it's morally wrong to give your boss the finger. In Riggs' situation, he has effectively blackballed himself from managing again. Nothing morally wrong, but just plain dumb, at least on the surface.
The issue of Riggs quitting on his team is another question.
