Many employees do not realize or understand everything that their employer does for them; especially when it comes to employee benefits. Most employees do not know the real value of what it costs an employer to actually provide them with benefits.

I negate, I define employer as a person or organization that employs people. I define loyal as giving or showing firm and constant support or allegiance to a person or institution. My opponents ONLY argument is a classical Kantian contradiction of the conception. The argument is that employees seek benefits from their employees, so they need to provide loyalty. But, if everyone was loyal and continued to receive raises on their benefits, then the entire economy would collapse. AND
Economic collapse causes nuclear war-resource wars Broward:
((Member of Triond) http://newsflavor.com...)
Now its time to look at the consequences of a failing world economy. With five official nations having nuclear weapons, and four more likely to have them there could be major consequences of another world war. The first thing that will happen after an economic collapse will be war over resources. The United States currency will become useless and will have no way of securing reserves. The United States has little to no capacity to produce oil, it is totally dependent on foreign oil. If the United States stopped getting foreign oil, the government would go to no ends to secure more, if there were a war with any other major power over oil, like Russia or China, these wars would most likely involve nuclear weapons. Once one nation launches a nuclear weapon, there would of course be retaliation, and with five or more countries with nuclear weapons there would most likely be a world nuclear war. The risk is so high that acting to save the economy is the most important issue facing us in the 21st century. AND
EXTINCTION FIRST
Bostrom 11 [Nick Bostrom. "Existential Risk Prevention As the Most Important Task for Humanity", 2011, Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford]
"These reflections on moral uncertainty suggest[s] an alternative, complementary way of looking at existential risk. Let me elaborate. Our [that our] present understanding of axiology might well be confused. We may not now know"at least not in concrete detail"what outcomes would count as a big win for humanity; we might not even yet be able to imagine the best ends of our journey. If we are indeed profoundly uncertain about our ultimate aims, then we should recognize that there is a great option value in preserving"and ideally improving"our ability to recognize value and to steer the future accordingly. Ensuring that there will be a future version of humanity with great powers and a propensity to use them wisely is plausibly the best way available to us to increase the probability [ensure] that the future will contain a lot of value."

ALSO, in a wavering economy where everyone is desperately trying to find a job that suits them; showing loyalty to an employee would be a sign of disrespect upon that resignation to join a new company. So my thesis, is that employess need to show some selfless respect that will prevent the preceding impacts from happening. Thus you vote NEG.
