Reading through a few other threads got me thinking. Really, it comes down to "should an employee ever stand up to his employer and demand proper work conditions or should he stand down and do what he's told or be fired?" It seems like a lot of posters around here believe that if you work for someone who is putting you in situations that you do not believe are acceptable, then you just accept it, quit, or be fired. It almost seems as if no employee should ever have the right to demand safe working conditions, proper pay, or anything else. So what do people think about the events in this story: How 'Midnight Rider' Victim Sarah Jones Lost Her Life It's a tragic state of affairs when you feel that you are being put in an unsafe situation, and your only other option is to not work, until someone else will allow themselves to be put in danger, which doesn't fix anything.
