So to summersie I think the "right to work" rules are a good thing. Some may dissagree, fine go work in some other country if you feel so strongly.

I have enjoyed this banter, it has been fun. You all have a nice weekend now.
Later.

Mr. Manager
I like this nickname so much I may use it as my next screen name after I get barred for being too rude in the photo gallery section!

In fact, in GA, you could work for a company for 1 day or 15 years and your boss can fire you for no REASON. My lawyer is quoted as saying "you can fire him for the wind blowing"...

Any other states like Georgia where employment law is non-existent? I know in Europre employERS complain it's gone too far the other way and you almost can't fire anyone in the UK!!
Alabama is also an "at will" State, they can fire you for a good reason, bad reason, or no reason at all.

Being rude in the photo gallery is a sign of an inferiority complex of the worst kind...

What kind of sad lonely person has to come on a website such as this and try and make people care how successful they are? Frankly I dont care how much anyone earns, what they do or how good at it they are. It really isnt important in life. To be honest the way you use bullshit buzz words (usually in the wrong context) makes me think you are lying, but I dont really care - and I dont think anyone else does either.

You are just making a fool of yourself with the comments on this post - but it is great sport so you are probably just spamming to get this going - otherwise you wouldnt have mis-spelt so many words after being called out on it!

Thanks for the entertainment!

PS - manager is a lowly title in this country where even the lowly workers are directors, vice presidents or executives!!
