Christopher Hamsher, of Ontario, Oregon, lost his job recently. "I went ahead and opened my big mouth," says Hamsher. After overhearing a colleague speak ill of him Hamsher confronted him and was reported by a co-worker. He says because of the store's zero tolerance harassment policy, he was let go immediately. Now Hamsher is collecting social security and working for meals at a local bar. John Rosman/OPB hide caption
