Then you never been in situation where the director is doing something so stupid that you have no choice but to resign. My coworkers and I at one company got a director fired because he wanted everyone to sign copyright assignments for everything on the job AND at home. We told the HR person we weren't signing the document and would resign instead. Faced with a dozen resignations and potential lawsuits for something has absolutely nothing to do with our daily work, HR got upper management to fix the problem in a hurry. None of us checked out bank accounts before threatening to resign. We did it because it was the right thing to do.
Actually, I have. And you know what would have happened if we had stood up and done that? Within 24 hours contractors would have been brought in from India or China to do it anyway, and I would still have given up my job. I have a wife and kids that my losing my job would very gravely impact. As in, possibly cost us our home, cost my kids their access to education, etc. Right now, I need my job or else it directly impacts my family. It's noble of you to be willing to jump off a cliff on principle, but not all of us have that ability.
Then you're doing it wrong. No wonder you need money to grow a pair.
So, question, do you just get your rocks off being a dick for no reason? Real question. I've been respectful to you, and in turn you've been an ass. You haven't really added anything to the conversation other than trying to turn this into some kind of pissing contest. Power dynamics and politics are a real thing. You sound clueless about the industry at a fortune 500 level, and about basic human psychology.
