    Morally, you are absolutely correct.  And I should have added above that if an employer tries to prevent you from voting, you can sue them for that--many additional states specifically grant time off on election day for people to vote. But in speaking out against the employer's political activities with a letter, you are relying on the employer to respond to the moral argument, or at best, to respond to the implied or explicit economic threat that it will lose valuable employees or that the publicity will lead the employer's customers to take their business elsewhere. It is generally not, however, legally "protected" conduct.  

    •  Yeah, that's true. (1+ / 0-)

      I'm just saying that if employers won't be restrained by civilized conduct, then there's no point in employees agreeing to be restrained by it either.

      Voter suppression is treason.
