The board of directors was never going to allow her to return to her post after what she did. There had been a big stink about them appointing a new ceo without a vote. The new guy was from the old guy's home town out West. Even the newspapers reported it. Several months earlier, the papers reported the huge salary and all the perks that the ceo was getting. A lot of employees were irritated, especially since certain jobs had already been cut and non-salaried employees had to begin punching a time clock. People in town questioned the reason for giving him so much wealth - in private, they questioned. She uncovered the answers, the blackmail. She could have kept the information to herself. Others have a right to know, she thought. Others might be in the same situation as me, she thought. I'm not going to play their game. At least not by their rules.
