RANT: Isn’t this like slavery or indentured servitude?

A veteran JPMorgan Chase banker fumed over the financial giant’s policy requiring staffers to give six months’ notice before being allowed to leave for another job.

The Wall Street worker, who claims to earn around $400,000 annually in total compensation after accumulating 15 years of experience, griped that the lengthy notice period likely means a lucrative job offer from another company will be rescinded.

Taking to the social media platform Blind — which allows career professionals anonymity so that they can freely post without concern about retribution from their bosses — the worker in the e-trade division lamented over the policy.

Seems like this is a form of slavery.  Even if a well compensated form of it.  I can understand wanting to protect your business but it’s a fact of life that every night your most important asset walks out the door.  

A six month notice requirement is different IMHO than a noncompete clause.  One “indentures” you; the other just limits where you can go.

I would assume that if one litigated this, the courts would see it as slavery. 

Of course, that assumes you can get “justice” in a Gooferment court, when Big Business owns so many politicians and bureaucrats.

There is always room for improvement, and believe me I needed it.”

Bream, a devout Christian and graduate of the evangelical Liberty University, tweeted: “I got a healthy serving of humility, and learned that God often allows us to walk through valleys – for our own good.”

“That was also true when I spent years in chronic pain and was ultimately diagnosed with a genetic condition that has no cure.”

In 2018, Bream revealed that she suffers from excruciating eye pain caused by epithelial basement membrane dystrophy, which is an incurable genetic disorder of the eye.

The painful condition causes the surface cells of the eye to adhere to the eyelids.

Bream says that her career obstacles and health challenges have only served to better her.
