Sleezy Texas labor law loophole

I am not up on the labor laws everywhere around the world, but we have a nasty one here in Texas.

State law allows employers to fire an employee and reel that person back into the office the instant they apply for unemployment benefits. This happens because a fired worker can be denied the money if they turn down work, so Mr. Business takes something of a feudel lordship over the worker in question.

State legislators need to take note of this. The chatter about this is rising statewide and will sooner or later make its way to the media and voting booth.
