49. I tend to agree, having worked for several large corporations

For example, many US corporations were actually leaders in marriage rights, extending benefits to same-sex couple long before it was socially acceptable outside of the workplace. Or, in another way, in 2006 your employer might have recognized you and your partner as a couple, while your government did not. In some states, your employer might have recognized you and your partner as a couple, while your government held laws on its books that made your existence as a couple punishable by imprisonment.

For the most part, I did my job and was paid adequately, and what I did after I clocked out was never a concern of my employer. I don't think employment for a large corporation is in any way less free than any other kind of employment.
