If you can't speak your mind, share photos of yourself in a bikini on the beach, dressed up for Halloween, drinking wine or beer, swear or exercise your free speech, and countless other activities on your facebook/social media account because you may be fired at work/punished/or not hired, you are facing something the majority of Americans in almost every job industry are facing: EMPLOYER ABUSE OF TECHNOLOGY, INVASION OF PRIVACY, AND ABUSE OF POWER, NOT TO MENTION THE SHOCKINGLY LEGAL PRACTICE OF FIRING SOMEONE FOR ACTIVITIES THAT OCCURRED AFTER YOU LEFT WORK AND CROSSED THE BOUNDARY INTO YOUR OWN PRIVATE LIFE, PROTECTED BY THE CONSTITUTION'S CLAUSE OF LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.
We are being oppressed, at an ever-growing, disturbing and alarming rate by outside forces especially our work places or potential workplaces who are abusing their power through use of social networks to spy and snoop into their employees private lives to make hiring decisions, decide whether to fire someone, and monitor their own daily activities. Like a camera installed into a bedroom from an unseen voyeur, employers are watching our separate private lives away from work online with the ferocity of a CIA agent team monitoring a suspect. It is shown in polls that the majority of Americans do not approve of, or want this corruption to continue, yet it does and we have no legislation to protect us from a new abuse occurring on a natural extension of our private lives-the social networks.
We are now seeing employers everywhere in America abusing technology and using facebook, twitter, myspace, and other social networks including email to invade the private lives of their unknowing employees, employees who are not even posting at or in the workplace, are not committing dangerous/illegal acts, and are exercising their right to a private and free existence of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Something sinister, corruptive, and uncontrolled has happened in America with the advent of the internet and social networks and email sharing. Employers, who rightly should act if an employee is actually abusing or disobeying workplace policies INSIDE THEIR WORKPLACES, or are caught in ILLEGAL/DANGEROUS/OR OBSCENE ACTS such as pedophilia, sex with minors, drug selling, murder, terrorism and other felonies/serious crimes on the internet, are instead discriminating/acting/making decisions related to the future or the continued position of YOUR JOB, on the innocent details of their unknowing employees private lives. They are now discriminating us if we are caught living and acting as normal human beings, if we are swearing, posing in a bikini on a fishing trip, drinking a cup of wine at a famous winery while on vacation in Italy, wearing a pirate costume for Halloween, or expressing ourselves and opinions freely to our friends and families in our social networks.
Even if their employee has a public profile, firing/suspending/punishing them for something that occurs outside of work which has now crossed the boundary of THEIR PRIVATE LIVES-unless it falls into the categories of pedophilia, adults trying to have sex with minors, killing, terrorism plots, or other illegal/dangerous acts-is DEAD WRONG. The teacher in Florida fired for wearing a bikini during a fishing trip, the employee fired for dressing up ON HALLOWEEN AS A PIRATE, the other teacher fired for holding a wine glass at an Italian winery, and all other perversions of facebook employer abuse, corruptions, and acts are ruining people's lives permanently, and will continue to unless we put a stop to it.
HELP ME GET CONGRESS, OUR PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, AND ANYONE ELSE WITH THE AUTHORITY AND OBLIGATION AND DUTY TO OUR FREEDOM IN AMERICA, OUR PRIVACY IN AMERICA, AND OUR LIBERTY AND PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS TO STOP THIS ILLEGAL INVASION OF PRIVACY AND EMPLOYER ABUSE OF POWER AND TECHNOLOGY BY SIGNING THIS PETITION.
THIS PETITION WILL ASK CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT, AND ALL OTHERS RESPONSIBLE FOR UPHOLDING OUR FREEDOM AND PRIVACY, LIFE AND LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS AS AMERICAN CITIZENS, TO STOP THESE CORRUPTIONS AND RESTORE OUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY, TO MAKE EMPLOYER SOCIAL MEDIA INTRUSION/ABUSE OF TECHNOLOGY/AND FIRING/SUSPENSION/PENALTIES AT WORK FOR INFORMATION/PHOTOS/VIDEOS/ETC THAT DON'T FALL INTO THE CATEGORIES LISTED ABOVE ILLEGAL, AND TO PROTECT US FROM THIS CONTINUED DISCRIMINATION.
WE NEED TO PROTECT OURSELVES FROM CONTINUING TO BE LEGALLY OPPRESSED FROM HAVING PRIVACY AND FREEDOM BY HAVING INVISIBLE CYBER BARS ON US, TO BE OURSELVES AND CONTINUE TO LIVE OUR OWN LIVES, WHEREVER WE MAY CHOOSE TO LIVE AND SHARE THEM, IN OUR OWN LIVES OUTSIDE OF WORK. GOD BLESS AMERICA, FORMER LAND OF THE FREE, FORMER REFUGE FROM PERSECUTION, AND FORMER PLACE WHERE AMERICANS COULD LIVE FREELY IN PRIVACY, WITH LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. LET'S GET IT BACK.
