If only my work could help the U.S. Army. Its great to be able to help the men and women in the military. In the case of these people they are employees they need to leave the business to the board of directors, to cut it short your an employee you do what we tell you to do or go find the door. They are entitled to their opinion, though in my eyes these people are lower than the dirt inside the worms in the ground.

Wha...? I understand that these people stand for something you don't believe in, but that last sentence is classist as ****. I'm sure your employees appreciate your slave factory

If those Microsoft employees were concerned about their jobs, then they would not have protested being assigned that job. The Washington economy is booming.
