At-Will Employees Discussed on America’s Work Force

Justin Madden, lawyer with Justin Madden Co. LPA spoke with America’s Work Force on Sept. 13 to discuss at-will employees.

Justin MaddenMadden began his conversation by talking about how Ohio is an “at-will” state, which means that employees could be fired at the discretion of their employers, at any time, for a good reason or no reason at all. That being said, an employee could do everything that their job required them to do and do it well and their employer could still hypothetically fire them. Madden said that in a private sector, this would not be the case, so only public sector workers are affected by working in an at-will state.

President Trump’s Distract and Divert Strategy Discussed on America’s Work Force

Jim Cullen, editor of the Progressive Populist spoke to America’s Work Force on August 9 about how the President diverts bad press against him to a different issue.

Progressive PopulistCullen discussed President Trump and his inability to appropriately react to any news or press that he does not like or feels is against him. He talked about how instead of addressing, or accepting when someone has something negative to say about him or his actions, President Trump redirects comments and criticisms and blames or attacks other people for unrelated issues. With the increase of major tragedies occurring in the United States and the press demanding action from the President, his deflect and distract method has become more and more used. Rather than taking reasonable action or answering questions about what to do to combat or solve these issues, the President blames someone else, or brings up a different issue to draw the negative attention away from him. Lastly, Cullen talked medicare, specifically protecting the American Care Act.
