Any time you work out your notice you are giving your employer time to reschedule shifts and hire your replacement, you're making the experience as stress free for them as possible. If you walk out you leave them with a problem, they need to make special arrangements.

Anyone in management may be annoyed about your reason for leaving to make a political point, they may decide to forcibly stamp their point over yours by using that 2 weeks to make false accusations or stitch you up. You might think that all your colleagues are good guys but are you so sure about their political positions? There's no quicker way of making enemies than taking a firm political stance. If I was going to work my last 2 weeks I'd do it wearing a camera for my own safety, although to be honest I'd rather pull my own teeth out than risk going back on the premises after handing in my notice.

Companies don't give a 2 week lay off notice, why should employees?

"References".

All it takes is a past employer telling a prospective employer ,"I wouldn't hire him again," or, "His mode of departure left a bad taste in my mouth." Sure, you can explain it away - if you get a call back in the first place.

It depends on your reasons for leaving. If you're "pursuing new opportunities" or some such, working out the two weeks is just a way of staying on good terms. If there's a serious problem, abruptly quitting is almost certainly the right thing to do: you'll do nothing but contribute to it if you stay.

My last job, for instance, I decided to quit almost as soon as my shift started: the order came down to tell customers our systems were down whenever we had so much as a single call holding(I guess management wanted to improve the metrics the cheap way). I did work through the end(technically past, since I had to finish something up), but handed in my badge on the way out the door.
