Should employers be allowed to force their employees to skip breaks (since the economy is so bad they can't quit)? Should they be able to make them work while they're off the clock? Should they be allowed to cut hours in half without notice? Should they be allowed to require 12 hr days and only give the absolute minimum time off every 2 weeks as allowed by law, even if that means in reality employees only get 4 hrs of sleep per night? Should salary be an excuse to require 80 hr weeks, even though there's been a salary freeze for 2 years? Cancel vacation time? Should they be allowed to verbally abuse them? Physically? Emotionally?
At what point is it going too far before someone is "allowed" to quit their job "in this economy" without being fodder for the privileged who look down on anyone who isn't blessed with a good job right now?
And for those who think any of those things are exaggeration, they've been common practice in the gaming industry for years - long before they could blame it on the economy.
