Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
This physically makes me ill. I can't believe crap like this is legal in America. So many thoughts are flowing through my head right now. I want this business owner to be sued. I want to reach out and support these employees. I want these employees to become entrepreneurs and be able to be be wildly successful and shove it in the face of this asshole owner.
Im the nearish future, Im going to be starting up a software company and I know that I would rather go out of business than treat my employees or customers in this way. Perhaps that will make me an unsuccessful entrepreneur, but I would rather keep my principle of people over dollars.
Right now, I wish I were a lawyer who was a member of the Nevada Bar association so I could sue the shit out of this guy. There aren't many times in life where you encounter an absolute wrong, but this is one of them.
Editing to add:
Thanks for the comments indicating that there's a high probably that this is utter bullshit. I'll admit to being rather sensitive to this issue because I think that employers making any comments about how their employees vote is fundamentally wrong. I'll keep an eye out for any confirmation though.
