Yep. But lots of people like to confuse the issue of first amendment rights by pretending that negative consequences for speech serve to suppress it. It’s stupid, but people always make that argument. They made it over Limbaugh’s slut comments, they’ll make it on this one.

It shouldn’t be as easy as it is in this country to just fire someone, but that’s thanks to the weakness of our unions and worker’s right’s laws.

If the boss can make the case that your actions are detrimental to the company’s image and to the morale of your co-workers, that is grounds enough, even in countries with stricter labor laws.
