Racist McDonald's Bosses FIRE 10 Workers. Not OK.
McDonald's: "There are too many black people in the store" should NEVER be an acceptable reason for workers at your stores to be fired. Ensure NO ONE ELSE who works for you is racially harassed, and pay the 10 workers in South Boston, Virginia, fired on racist grounds, back pay and damages today.
Why is this important?
I was fired from the McDonald’s where I worked because I don't "fit the profile."
What profile? Well, my bosses didn't explain, but they did say things like, "There are too many black people in the store."
And: "We need to get the ghetto out of the store."
And: "It's dark in here and needs more lightening."
More than a dozen of my African American coworkers were fired with me - and many of us are filing suit against McDonald's to stop this kind of racist harassment.
