Re: Or Brooks, "It's good to be the king."
Steve Jobs was more indispensible for Apple.
Employers should not facilitate misconduct, and if they do, potential customers may retaliate by going elsewhere. Some people who buy computers or use Internet services are women, who would empathize with a woman abandoned when she is pregnant.
So this kind of personal misconduct is a risk for a company that has to be weighed against other factors. If he had been an assembly-line worker, whose personal life wouldn't be taken as a reflection on his employer's brand, that would also be a different case - therefore allaying fears that we might end up in a state where our employers would be Big Brother, regulating our personal lives.
