Last week, immigrants and liberal activists across the country chose not to show up to work to protest Donald Trump’s plan to deport criminal illegal immigrants from the country.
Despite not being targeted by Trump’s “travel ban”, these immigrants and protesters have apparently bought into the media narrative that Trump is anti-immigrant rather than the reality that Trump is focused on deporting people in this country that have committed crimes.
Apparently, some employers were not too pleased with their employees who didn’t show up to work.
Employees across the country found out the hard way that you can’t just skip work to protest without finding someone to cover your shift with no consequences.
More than 100 employees were fired for participating in the “Day Without Immigrants” protest last week, NBC News reported.
Employees working at restaurants and day cares in New York, Florida, Tennessee and Oklahoma, among other states, were fired after they did not show up to work to participate in the demonstration.
About 20 employees were fired at Bradley Coatings Inc., in Nolensville, Tenn., after participating in the protest. NBC News reported a statement from the company’s attorney said the employees knew they were risking termination by participating in the protest. […]
Twenty-five workers at Ben’s Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers in Long Island, N.Y., were fired as well. There, police escorted the workers from the restaurant after they returned from the protests. In a statement, the restaurant said employees were asked to find someone to fill their shift if they chose to participate in the event. The business also said that the owner dismissed several employees for pressuring colleagues to join the protest.

That’s how it goes.
Don’t show up to work. Don’t have a job.
Was it worth it?
