Last week, thousands of immigrants across the nation staged the latest protest against Donald Trump. The demonstration, called “A Day Without Immigrants,” asked foreign-born workers to refuse to work. The purpose was to show Trump supporters how vital immigrants are to the nation's economy.
Unfortunately for those who chose to participate, the demonstration didn't go exactly as planned. Rather than prove how necessary they are to the country, they proved how unnecessary they are in the workplace. Now they're facing the consequences.
It seems not all employers are willing to allow their workers to skip work in order to protest a democratically-elected president. If the immigrants were trying to show how much they work, skipping out on their jobs probably wasn't the greatest way to prove it.
Read about the unintended consequences of the protest on the next page:
As long as they continue to think they were fired because they are Mexicans instead of not showing for work, racism will never end in their minds
Most employers give a verbal then a written warning for time and attendance then your fired.
Good,plenty of people who will work,like our vets and high-schoolers,even senior’s. A bunch of idiots
Everyone is replaceable. No call no show no job.
Restore Justice, bust illegals.
Seems to be the only immigrants that laid out of work were illegals.
To find themselves replaced by a deplorable! Someone that knows how to work and fulfill their duties and obligation they have been in trusted to fill! !!!!
You people and that fucking Indian thing!! Nobody’s talking about 250 plus yrs ago, it’s about here and now! This country can’t support all the illegals coming here and mooching! We have American born kids, women and men here that need help!
