This question has been running around in my head for the past couple days. I remember taking a class in High School called modern studies which covers politics and other modern type issues. One of the questions asked in the class was “What companies would you not work for because they make something that is against your moral beliefs” Would you work for a company that makes bombs that kill people for example? Would you work for the company that makes the microchips that are used by the company that make the bombs? Would you work for a company that you know makes something that is used by the company that makes the microchips? Where do you draw the line?

This was an interesting question when I was 14, I am now I am 26 and looking for a job and a lot of the companies in the area are involved in military contracts.

    good point.

    i have left companies because I didnt agree with their policies or ethics.

    question is.. do you have any option if you want to stay?

    I wouldn’t work for a company that makes cigarettes. 🙂

    Hmmm, the organization I work for has gotten donations from Phillip Morris….but I guess that’s different.
