Republicans condone Hewlett Packard's prior misconduct and infringement of rights

An ex-employee of Hewlett-Packard spin-off Agilent Technologies claims violations of Americans rights and corporate corruption flourished under Republicans.

SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA. An ex-employee, John Rose, said, Many people were shocked by the alleged conduct of Hewlett-Packard in abusing the privacy rights of board members, but this abuse is nothing compared to the unlawful acts HP was found guilty of under then-CEO Carly Fiorina in 2003.

Rose referred to National Labor Relations Board case, 25-CA-28591, in which Hewlett-Packard unlawfully terminated an employee for his pro-union activity. HP fired a supporter of the Steelworkers for supposedly being out of his work areaвЂon a day that he wasnt even scheduled to work.

The NLRB concluded this was an obvious violation of law, but only required HP to pay back wages and put a poster on a rarely noticed bulletin board.

Commenting on layoffs, CEO Fiorina notoriously said, no American has a god-given right to a job. Rose counters, according to the Declaration of Independence and the UN Declaration of Human Rights, we do have certain inalienable rights. One of which is to join together for mutual benefit when our jobs and the strength of our community are in jeopardy.

1. Republicans are Fascists by Definition:
Fascism is a radical political ideology that combines elements of corporatism, authoritarianism, nationalism, militarism, anti-anarchism, anti-communism and anti-liberalism.

Also known as right-wing authoritarianism.
