There's usually more to these stories than is initially disclosed. There's a nice shock-value (so and so got fired for riding such and such to work or whatever), but the facts often muddy the waters. For example, you often have to sign a non-disparagement clause when you agree to work for someone, meaning that while under their employ, you are not allowed to say bad things about them. This is perfectly legal.

Rights and freedoms are defined as what the government can do to restrict your behavior - not as what some company might or might not require of you. This isn't a liberal or conservative issue - it's an issue of an employee using quesitonable judgment; I'm guessing, but I don't know, that he had exhibited bad judgment historically, as good mechanics and good employees are hard to find.

As a side note, Sportbikebandit, you seem to be afflicted with BDS - Bush Derangement Syndrome - and appear to get your economic "facts" from Paul Krugman. This is a dangerous practice, as he frequently issues erroneous analysis. Is Bush an idiot? Sure, sometimes, although less frequently than Kerry, to pick an apropos example. So was Clinton. Big deal. It's annoying to constantly have to listen to the carping all the time. Give it a rest and talk about issues, not generically broad ideology. Clinton got campaign contributions from the Chinese military. Bush is a liar and wants to steal your children to fund Halliburton's money factory. Reagan is the Devil. Kerry is a traitor. Blah blah blah.

If you think that there's something wrong with "at will" employment, then say so. Somehow firing on Bush for a state law enacted long before he was elected, though, is pointless.
