Companies should not have the right to regulate our lives outside the workplace. There are limited exceptions to this (and I stress limited), but too often we accept that workplaces can act as our own personal dictators and that we should be grateful for having a job. There is a difference between gratitude and pure subservience. You go to the place and do what you are supposed to and get paid for it. Beyond that, there should be no employer control. This includes what one says or what opinion one has among friends and even in public to a limited extent.
Some may believe employers are doing workers a favor to hire them. Actually the reverse is true; employers should be grateful to have workers who help them function.
