Oregon is an "at will" state also. And yeah, they can kick you out with no
notice, no nuthin' and it doesn't abridge anyone's rights---unless you have
a CONTRACT. It works both ways, I can leave without notice anytime I wish,
and they can show me the door anytime they wish. Somehow, I think I'd
rather it be my idea!
