Day Without Immigrants: More than a hundred US employees sacked for taking part in protest

More than a hundred workers across the US were reportedly fired for taking place in the “Day Without Immigrants” protests against President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

The demonstrations, for which support was largely drummed up online, urged foreign-born workers to refuse to participate in the US economy for a day.

Nearly 20 employee at Bradley Coatings, a commercial painting company in Tennessee, told supervisors on Wednesday that they would not be coming into work the following day, instead making up the time on Sunday.

However, they were told on Thursday that they had lost their jobs, NBC4 reported.

    Want to protest on company time? Fine. Now that you’re fired, you can protest all day long.

    Why is there even any debate about this?

    • Because it’s 2017!

    Still not nearly enough.

    Go back to Moochico etc. and get a job, where you won’t be an illegal alien.
