Oh, so complaining in the mass media has different consequences than complaining in social media? Seriously? This is your defense? What a joke!<quoted text>Guess it all depends upon how much they are complaining. In the case of the actor, he was complaining in the mass media.
Now were the employees in Bacon's example hurting the company? How vocal were they even being? We do not know, as Bacon has not made a claim on this. For all we know it could just be rumors in the grapevine. For all we know the grapevine has been exaggerated.
Can the employer fire them? Probably,but is it the right thing to do? Is it moral? Is it productive?
We really do not know the situation, but again, you seem to think the worst of the employee.
Again I ask, why not just hire more people and thus help with the unemployment problem? Clearly this is not happening in this situation. They just worked the guy more and gave him(supervisor) more and gave him no more money to do so.
We're the employees hurting the company? Yes! Companies rely on their employees to do their job and sometimes that means extra work which includes extra compensation. Is it required, no, but if the customers don't receive the goods or services expected, there may be NO customers in the future. Can the company fire them? Yes, but one, it's not cost productive, two, companies don't fire anyone, people fire themselves! I don't think the worst of employees although some are better than others.
Hire more employees? What happens when buisness slows and those employees are no longer needed? They're laid off thus the money invested to hire, train, and educate about the business is wasted, not to mention the unemployment responsibilities of the company for the said employees! Again, it obvious you've never owned a business, your argument, albeit empathetic, is pathetic!
