Texas is a right to work state, so they can fire employees for any reason except for a federally protected class.

I think you mean “at-will” state. Right to work refers to employees during union organization activities.

Yeah, when I saw the "right to work" i thought he was actually talking about the opposite. But I wasn't 100% sure.

They can....but very rarely do they actually do it. It is very hard to fire people in Texas...or most states & industries without the employee committing an egregious act or having a paper trail detailing the repeat offenses/disciplinary action.

It also depends if the employee has a form of employment agreement (contract) or is otherwise part of a collective bargaining unit. If either, termination is not as discretionary as it is with a pure at-will employee.

Not in my experience.

I don't know if it's been discussed yet in this thread (lots of pages to go through that I haven't done) but I have been seeing a lot of stuff about the vaccine "sheds" during intercourse from one person to the next, etc, and all the microchips and demons are spread to those you have intercourse with if you've received the vaccine.

I just can't deal with people and their insistence that they have "researched" and they know this vaccine is bad and there's a reason government is forcing it on everyone with lotteries and such.

And I'm just like what have you researched & for how long that the scientists/researchers, biomed engineers, toxicologists, epidemiologists, immunologists, physicians and regulatory experts that I actually know in person and work with in real life in a global company (so drug development across many countries and governments) who have been doing this for 20-50 years haven't and what makes your limited research superior to theirs?

It's also interesting to me because many of these same experts have not practiced their expertise in real life in only 1 therapeutic area. Their experience spans MANY therapeutic areas. So it's interesting that you've researched "so much" but don't know this about these folks and you'd trust them if you got diagnosed with cancer or a brain tumor or Parkinson's, etc.

Republicans passed a number of anti union laws under the right to work label. I deliberately used that term to show what it actually means. One of the effects is that employment is at will. Employees can leave at any time and employers can fire at any time.

So my theoretical company can mandate that all employees eat a pound of rat poison, each because I say that it'll prevent a covid infection? (I guarantee it by the way)

I didn't see the point of debate. He moved to the US from Pakistan in the mid 80's. That alone probably increased his life expectancy.
Today is the 2nd time this week I’ve seen him eat lunch consisting of 2 gas station hot dogs. And he’s worried about putting the COVID vaccine in his body.

This is a silly tangent, but I can't help myself so, yes and no.

At-will employment applies to all employment in the state and simply means that in the absence of a contract or equivalent employment or collective bargaining agreement, the employer is free to terminate the employee at any time but for the areas where the employee is protected by law (e.g. discrimination, retaliation, etc.). At-will is generic, applies in all employment situations, and has been around for a long time.

Right to work laws are much newer and only apply to workplaces where there is an existing collective bargaining unit. The right to work laws say that the employer cannot require union membership (nor can the union bargain for compulsory union membership in that workplace), nor can non-union employees be compelled to pay union fees. It is true that the result of right-to-work is that where the employee does not sign on to a contract or equivalent agreement, that employee is at-will. Well of course the employee is at-will without an agreement - that is fundamentally what at-will means. But it isn't the right to work law that makes the employee at-will, it's the lack of a contract or equivalent agreement.

Man, what is in the water there in Ohio (magnets maybe)? This is a licensed physician.



BTW, there's the lady in the blue shirt again still bewildered at the craziness. And notice the lady in the back nodding in agreement. :saywhat:
