Day without Immigrants = Immigrants without Jobs

On February 16, some not terribly bright people decided to stage a “Day without Immigrants” protest by not going to work.  Well, I could have told you what happens when you don’t go to work and you haven’t got permission from your boss.

Dozens Fired After Joining “Day Without Immigrants” Protests

Eighteen of those who were fired worked at Bradley Coatings Inc., which had warned employees they would lose their jobs if they didn’t come to work. “Regretfully, and consistent with its prior communication to all its employees, BCI had no choice but to terminate these individuals,” the company said in a statement. “The reason these employees missed work—to engage in peaceful demonstrations—had nothing to do with BCI’s decision to terminate them.” Fired workers said they planned to make up the day on Sunday but the company didn’t budge.

In Lexington, South Carolina, 21 workers were fired from Encore Boat Builders after they took part in the national protest. The company has declined to comment. And in Denver, at least 30 workers were fired from JVS Masonry after they missed work on Thursday. “I have no view on immigration laws or anything going on with that. All I know is I have a business to run,” company owner Jim Serowski said. In Miami, four construction workers were fired—and 17 others subsequently quit in protest—from the Orange and Blue company.

In New York, 25 workers were fired from Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers in Long Island. In Catoosa, Oklahoma, a dozen workers were fired from the I Don’t Care Bar and Grill after they didn’t show up for work. The owner fired at least some of them via a horrific text message: “You and your family are fired. I hope you enjoyed your day off, and you can enjoy many more. Love you.” Restaurant owner Bill McNally justified the move, saying he has “zero tolerance policy” for people who skip work. The restaurant has already taken to Facebook to find new employees.

Shocking.

  1. These idiots don’t understand how most business works. Unless you make yourself invaluable to your employer (and taking the day off without leave isn’t the way to do that), you are considered replaceable. Always. Replaceable. This is how a business wanting to make money and get ahead does things. They don’t retain unreliable people who aren’t hard and dedicated workers. If they ever did let some employees get away with this kind of stunt, everyone would start taking advantage of them. The people who called for this “protest” must be so privileged they’ve never had to work in the real world. Now let’s see how the “day without women” goes!
