MS, of course, told me about this when she got home that night. And she went to her previous supervisor, Mickeye Barfield, and told her what was going on. Barfield said Kees was violating company policy on multiple grounds and recommended that MS go speak to Pam Jenkins, Infinity's vice president for human resources.

Kees, however, made several statements that MS took as threats not to go to HR.

She was being flexible, accommodating, a team player--all of the things modern American workers are told they are supposed to be.

The result? She was fired.
