Sounds like the lazy man's way to teach. The Office is a spoof. It in no way relates to reality. If the Junior thinks people will quit if an employer cuts healthcare, she should study the recent Harley Davidson incident instead of The Office.

"The Office" is satire. It exaggerates common (and recognizable) situations for humorous effect. I think using the show seems like an interesting and creative way of illustrating ethical issues related to the workplace.
