Iowa court: Bosses can fire 'irresistible' workers
That's right, in Iowa the Supreme Court just ruled that it is perfectly legal for your boss to sack you if they fancy you. Apparently the bosses feelings, although they cannot be measured or quantified in any real sense, have more legal standing than a contract or civil rights legislation.
This case is obviously heading to the US Supreme Court, as I don't see this ruling being able to stand. I mean, it gives all employers the ability to sack people without cause, without giving them a pension or severance. They can actually discriminate legally.
No, I didn't fire him because I found out he was a Muslim. I fired him because I thought he was attractive. No I didn't fire her because I found out she was gay, I fired her because I found her attractive. No I didn't sack that man just to avoid paying his yearly bonus and giving him his pension, I found him attractive so I had to sack him.
And people wonder why we still need unions.
