Quitting in disgust
Rafe: Quitting in disgust
You don't have to be financially secure to quit a job in disgust... I've done it twice, and I wasn't financially secure either time.
Granted, once it was because I was disgusted with my salary and I immediately moved to a higher paying job, but the other time I left myself unemployed and scrambling for work. I was in a situation where I was asked to do something I felt was unethical, and rather than harm my integrity, reputation and conscience, I quit the job. It severely screwed my family financially (we're still digging out of that mess actually), but it was the right thing to do and I don't regret it at all.
Nothing I control is worth more than my integrity and I'll sacrifice a lot to protect it.
I'm not suggesting that Rafe quit his job... heck if I quit my job every time I was "disgusted" at something going on at work I would have stopped looking for new jobs ages ago. But sometimes, the level of disgust necessitates a change regardless of the consequences.
