That is pretty much my first thought seeing this. I'm rather appalled seeing all the other conversations going on that seem to be completely missing this little nugget of fact.
It's not my employers business what I eat. It's not my employers business what I do on my off time. It's not my employer's business what my credit score is. The only thing that is my employers business is that I am doing the work prescribed by my job description in the manner outlined upon hire. Not a god damn thing else.
Why do people keep rolling over and letting this shit happen?
