Last week my workplace laid off approximately half of the office staff and there was considerable concern about disgruntled former employees. This led me to wonder about the word "Disgruntled". Is it the opposite of "Gruntled"? Can a former employee who has become disgruntled become "Regruntled" if rehired?
It turns out, "Gruntled" is a word, but it has been a while since it has been applicable to many American workers.
