60+ People Lost Their Jobs After Participating In “Day Without Immigrants”
They should have named it “The Day you got fired for being really stupid…”
These people walked off their jobs for a day because of politics. The owners of those businesses had every right to fire them. All five states recognize at-will employment, which means employers can fire workers at any time without advance notice for any reason. Meanwhile the snowflakes who encouraged them to protest still have their jobs.
In at least five states, roughly 60 people lost their jobs this week after they skipped work to participate in the “Day Without Immigrants” protest on Thursday, according to local media reports.
The protest, which was aimed at highlighting the importance of immigrants to the U.S. economy, called on all immigrants to not work or buy anything Thursday and succeeding in shutting down businesses across the country, according to CNN. It is unclear, however, how many people participated in the strike, according to ABC News.
Still, around five dozen people say their participation in the protest cost them their employment as businesses fired them for not showing up to work.
In Tulsa, Oklahoma, 12 Latino workers at the I Don’t Car Bar and Grill told KTUL that they were fired over text message because they did not show up for their scheduled shift and did not call in. More
