A dozen workers at a Catoosa restaurant are without a job after getting fired for skipping work as a show of support for “A Day Without Immigrants.” The way he did it might stun people.
The name of the restaurant is “I Don’t Care Bar and Grill”. That should have been a dead giveaway about what might happen. It is a great name for the restaurant.
The workers, all kitchen staff, are all Hispanic and say they really felt they needed to participate in the national protest.
The protest was on behalf of ILLEGAL immigrants.
Somehow they didn’t realize they’d lose their jobs.
“They feel like they’ve been unfairly terminated,” said a friend, translating for them.
The employees didn’t want their names or faces revealed. “(They’ve) been working there for almost two years since the restaurant opened,” said the friend.
They’re saying they were fired for standing up for something. It’s hard to believe they didn’t know they could get fired.
Restaurant owner Bill McNally gave ktul a written statement, saying he has a “zero tolerance policy for no show/no call incidents and the 12 employees violated that policy.”
The owner fired them by text. He was undoubtedly not happy about what they had done.
