Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
(which is the law in most, but not all states) is a travesty. Within the constraints of Federal anti-discrimination law, it allows dismissal for any reason - work-related or not, for no reason, or even for a reprehensible reason (i.e. refusing to cook the books when so instructed by the employer).

Note that firing for political affiliation is not considered discrimination within the meaning of Federal law.

At-will employment is a human-rights issue, not an economic one.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
