    "For the public, the courts are a last resort, because we know to engage them is to risk bankruptcy and damage one's health due to the stress."  I don't know how to shade this, so I'll just state that this is a quote from pajoly's comment.

    Our son should file a lawsuit against the company that fired him for no legitimate reason but can't face the stress of lawyers, courtrooms, etc.  He basically has PTSD from working for this corp (corpse? because it had no soul) for 10 yrs and says two nightmares a week is all he can take. Adding a lawsuit would mean more nightmares.  Sad, but that's partly why corporations get away with abusing employees---that and "right to work" laws.
