On Thursday there was a nationwide protest by Hispanic people to protest the Trump administration. It was called “A Day Without Immigrants.” The purpose of it was to bring attention to how necessary immigrants are to our national fabric. But despite the fact that liberals love this type of stuff they hardly reported it on the media.
But now a restaurant in Oklahoma is punishing their staff for participating in the protest. A kitchen staff of predominantly Hispanic workers was fired for skipping work and attending the protest. KTLU reported that there were twelve fired workers.
They had worked formerly at the “I Don’t Care” Bar and Grill near Catoosa, Oklahoma. Reports indicate the owner of the restaurant Bill McNally sent the following text message to one of his workers,
“You and your family are fired. I hope you enjoyed your day off, and you can enjoy many more. Love you.”
The owner spoke to local media outlets saying that he is clear with all his employees from the very beginning that he has a zero tolerance policy for no shows and no calls within his staff and that the twelve employees who did not show so they protest violate that policy.
The immigrants themselves refused to show their faces and be seen on television. They also do not speak English as a first language and had to have an interpreter interpret for them. Their interpreter said,
“They feel like they’ve been unfairly terminated. They’re) upset they stood for something they felt was necessary so the community would stand together, and they got terminated for that. That was their way to show they are needed in the community. Immigrants are important to the nation.”
In Tennessee, 18 Hispanics were fired from their jobs at Bradley Coatings, Incorporated.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A total of 18 people were fired from one business after joining the nation-wide protest “A Day Without Immigrants.”
Thousands of people participated in the movement across the country, including people in Middle Tennessee.
In Nolensville, nearly 20 employees at Bradley Coatings, Incorporated told their supervisors on Wednesday they’d be taking part as well. Then, on Thursday they were told they no longer had jobs.
“We are the team leaders directly under the supervisors and they informed us last night that we could not go back to work and the boss said we were fired,” one employee told us.
The former employee asked to remain anonymous but had this message to his former boss.
“I would tell him he was unfair, after working for them for so many years, gave him our best. They could not understand that it was just one day. We were going to make up that day on a Sunday, but they didn’t understand that, and it was not the best way. They didn’t give us an opportunity and just told us we were fired,” he said.
It is very simple. When you don’t do your work you get fired. This is not a difficult concept to understand. The law does not make it so just because you want it to. Protesting won’t make anything different. Trump is not changing his policies and they have lost their jobs.
