That would be your child labor laws "argument".

Funny you had to put that in quotes, as that wasn't an argument. That was an example of how there were people ages ago who thought Child labor laws were for pussies, but now if somebody said up they'd get laughed off the stage, as we feel its worthwhile that our citizens (in this case children) are protected from exploitation.

I doubt you would be in Brad's position either. Glad we both realize you don't have what it takes to own a company.

Not everyone wants to own their own business, If your assertion is you need to be willing to shit on people and narcissism is a requirement, I don't mind sitting out.

They aren't co-workers, they are his employees. He is the boss.

Good thing that distinction is irrelevant in cases like this. Let me rephrase my statement and say Management and co-workers.

If work was to have fun and be yourself they wouldn't have to pay people much.

Tell that to a rock star...

Sure, lets use the fantasy scenario a handful (relatively speaking) of people live and pretend that it applies to everyone!

Nothing to do with narcissism and everything to do with perspective. Go ask some illegal immigrant (if you speak Spanish) what he would do if his boss flirted with him. Pretty sure the answer wouldn't be to cry about it.

Sure, a theoretical anecdote proves all your points! We should use the person with no legal protections and can be threatened with being reported on if they complain as an example, they'll undoubtedly be aware of protections that exist and that they aren't entitled to. But we don't need to ask, this question was asked years ago, and then we decided legislation should be passed to protect employees, and they generally aren't unpopular policies. I get that you think this makes people weak, but there is nothing to suggest that people being treated humanely at work makes them such.
