Is work ever “voluntary”? Setting aside questions of the neuroscience behind our actions, it is an interesting question to cogitate on.  Once at work, we essentially must do what our employer asks, or else be fired.  True, we certainly choose to have a job and go to work each day, but once there, can our actions be termed truly voluntary?  Especially in this economy?

Putting a finer point on it, should an employee who uses a defective product at work (a press missing a safety guard, etc.) be allowed to make a claim against the manufacturer of the defective product?

He really, really wants to run that press all day.
