More than a hundred migrants, who skipped work in order to participate in the March against the policies of US President Donald trump, were dismissed from their posts. About it reports The Independent.
For example, 20 employees of the company producing paint products Coatings Bradley February 15, notified the employer that will go to the meeting and not to work, and compensate for time this weekend. In the company’s management this step was not appreciated and all 20 activists were fired.
According to The Independent, in a similar way did many businesses across the country: for example, jobs lost 30 builders in Denver and 12 of the restaurant’s employees in Oklahoma.
Activists on Twitter called on people in the US to boycott those businesses who fired workers for participating in protest antitrombinom.
On February 16 the United States was the “day without migrants”: people from other countries went on a protest March, many cafes, restaurants and shops were closed.
