Did you notice “A Day Without Immigrants” on Thursday? Me neither. The lame protest was supposed to show America how desperately we need illegal aliens when “immigrants” across the country stayed home, but the impact was so minimal that even the liberal media who loves this kind of stuff barely covered it. The Hispanic kitchen staff of a restaurant in Oklahoma made the mistake of participating in this weak-ass protest and were shocked to find that they had been fired for skipping work.
KTLU reports that 12 Hispanic workers at the “I Don’t Care” Bar and Grill in Catoosa, OK decided to simply not show up to work on Thursday to take part in “A Day Without Immigrants” protest and were summarily fired, because that’s how shit works in the real world. Maybe the name of the restaurant should have tipped them off that the owner doesn’t care about their leftist bullshit.
Making this even funnier is how they got fired. Owner Bill McNally sent at least one of the workers this text message:
“You and your family are fired. I hope you enjoyed your day off, and you can enjoy many more. Love you,” wrote McNally
The owner explained to the news that he doesn’t put up with crap like this. In a written statement he said he has a “zero tolerance policy for no show/no call incidents and the 12 employees violated that policy.” He also told the news that he has fired employees in the past for not showing up for a scheduled shift.
The workers who were fired didn’t want to be identified or show their faces on the news, indicating that they are probably illegal aliens. They also don’t speak English so they had a “friend” interpret their complaints.
“They feel like they’ve been unfairly terminated,” said the friend.
Really? They were supposed to work and decided not to show up without even calling and that’s unfair? Why? Because they were participating in a protest of our nation’s immigration laws? Maybe with a bleeding heart liberal boss that would fly, but not with someone who actually cares about his business.
“(They’re) upset they stood for something they felt was necessary so the community would stand together, and they got terminated for that,” continued the friend.
No, they’re upset that they got fired. They mistakenly thought that blowing off their responsibilities for some liberal idiocy was a good idea and they were wrong.
“That was their way to show they are needed in the community,” the friend said.
Apparently not. Bossman had no problem firing them. Perhaps they overestimated how important dishwashers are.
“Immigrants are important to the nation,” finished the friend.
The problem here is that liberals want to conflate immigrants with illegal aliens. These are not the same things. Nobody has a problem with immigrants who come to this country the right way and contribute to society. It’s actually very insulting to legal immigrants that liberals insist they are the same as people who sneak into the country or overstay their visas. I know actual immigrants who had to jump through all kinds of hoops to come here and they are furious at illegal aliens who demand a free pass to the front of the line.
So A Day Without Immigrants was a bust. Most people didn’t notice how much they need illegal aliens and at least one boss in Oklahoma discovered he was fine without them.
