    Not in New York. They aren't required to give you a reason for termination. The labor laws in this country don't protect the employees as much as they do the employers.


    This is why they fired her. There's an ethics section in the employee handbook that list things that are frowned upon. Especially while on shift.

    She's lying. She knows they'll never make a public comment.

    Yep they can fire you for something simple like the color of your hair. So says a rep from the NYS Labor Dept. I've dealt with the NYS Labor Dept in the past and they are not very helpful and are a waste of tax payer dollars. They will tell you you should of had a Union in place to protect you.

    No matter where she goes it's better than McDonald's.

    I respect their right to run their business in that fashion but I respect this woman more for what she did and apparently so do other businesses who are willing to hire her.

    Mickie D's is nasty anyways. Who eats that crap?

    I don't know what's more depressing, the fact that she was fired for her altruism or the fact that there are those who nod in agreement. To think that the level of indoctrination is so high that anyone can actually think this is even close to acceptable is yet another piece of evidence in support of the worthlessness of the human race.

    Meh .. I don't buy her story. Could be lying like the woman who accused a family of not tipping her for some lgbt reasons.

    Maybe, but probably not. My guess is that this particular incident wasn't what got her fired. She probably had some strikes against her from past events.

    8 years at McDonalds...that must be some form of torture.
    I can see a couple of years out of necessity, but there has to be something better for you down the line.

    In her defense, she has kids, depending on her background, she may not have the opportunity for more.

    Edit: from the link airbud posted
    Hence the reason many think and rightly so, that the minimum wage is too low and when your only option for employment is something like McDs or other "application form" type jobs due to... well Life giving you the middle finger, its almost impossible to survive on those sorts of wages.

    Reading what ive just typed, im not sure it actually has any relevance to your post. But hey.
