Last Thursday there was a nationwide protest by mostly Hispanic people to protest the against Trump. Called “A Day Without Immigrants” with the purpose to bring attention to how necessary immigrants are to the US. Surprisingly the liberals media hardly reported it!
Now the protesters are facing he reality of their protest with one restaurant in Oklahoma punishing their staff for participating in it. The kitchen staff of mostly Hispanic workers were fired for skipping work and attending the protest. KTLU reported that there were twelve fired workers in total.
They had worked at the “I Don’t Care” Bar and Grill near Catoosa, Oklahoma. It’s reported that restaurant owner 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 McNally 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.
What done they understand, you don’t do your work you get fired.
