Comment Terminate Contract? (Score 1) 378

Amen. If people weren't so willing to believe the shit they have been brainwashed with from birth (more money on education CLEARLY means a better education, everyone NEEDS a college degree, buying a house ASAP is ESSENTIAL to being a good American - All of the following lead to massive debt early in life), they would have more flexibility in telling their employer to pack sand when they pull some bullshit, regardless of there being 10 people waiting in line for your job, or none.
