Quote of the Day

Just yesterday at work, the temp agency representative was looking up someone on Facebook. Evidently they had posted a comment about a boss. She didn’t find it…she wasn’t a friend. However, she was looking and it chilled my blood to witness it.

That's the crunch about our so-called right to "free speech." No one really gives a rat's ass if an employer uses blog posts, Facebook posts or Tweets against you, because it's not a government action. The result, however, is just as effective as if government did do it: you're hesitant to be honest and to speak your mind, knowing that someone will be offended and bring it to the attention of those who have power over you in the private sector.
