Sometimes you may have lively debates at work, but do you dare to discuss politics? It might be smart to avoid the subject. Turns out 25% of employers had a written policy on political activity in the workplace during the last presidential election, according to AOL Jobs. Some of these employers even had restrictions on political discussion. You'd probably be wise to avoid heated discussions with co-workers about your political views, but should you be punished for trying to promote something you believe in? This is not to say that you should go around pushing your political views on others (definitely a bad idea at work), however, does it hurt to silently show your support? Apparently, it can. One waitress was fired for wearing a Tea Party bracelet to work, according to Forbes. After several customers complained about the bracelet, the restaurant let her go, claiming that she had been inattentive to her tables. Whether or not this is true, is begs the question: Should you get fired for promoting your beliefs in the workplace? What do you think? Do you think supporting your political views should be a firable offense? Or do you believe it's justified? Please take our poll, and tell us what you think in the comment section below!
