"The person still didn't have health insurance, and now had the hassle/expense of working two PT jobs. but since it was all done in the name of compassion, it was all good.

Compassion for the selfish employer, maybe, not for the employee. "

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

There is a simple fact you seem to have not picked up on - people
will do what is in their own self-interest most of the time.
Employers.
Employees.
Customers.
Salesmen.
Government employees.
Senators.
Congressmen and women.
Our President.
And all of their staff.

This is why checks and balances are critical.
This is why some government regulation is important.
This is why a free and investigative press outside of the influence of
government is a necessity.
