I went through the employee handbook from my wife's business , a nationwide chain . There are several pages concerning social media . Her company reserves the the right to terminate her for any comments made on Facebook that are inflammatory , racist , considered hate speech etc; etc; . When she was hired as a manager , she was told to read the handbook , and if she agreed with the terms in the handbook , then she had to sign an agreement . If she refused to sign the employment agreement then she would be terminated then and there . She signed the agreement . So if she were fired for making the same comments , then so be it as she agreed to the terms of employment . And this is the updated copy , every time it is updated , she must read it anew and sign a new agreement for employment .

Why is this so hard for you to understand ? A person is free to run their mouth , they also need to ready to handle the sh*t they bring down around them . What if it were two homosexuals who were shot and killed and she was fired for saying they deserved it ... would you be on here defending her then ? Doubtful .

I personally do not care what anyone says , let them show their ass so everyone else knows exactly what kind of person they really are . BUT , I also do not care if they get fired for things they have said . For every action there is a reaction , she ran her mouth and she was fired for it . If it were my wife who was fired , I would tell her to deal with it , as I do all the time when she complains about her job . she agreed to the terms of employment .

As for your question about why others have not lost their jobs for making the same comments , well that is between them and their employers . Or they may not even have a job , so ... there's that too .

Wow. Okay.

Meeting social justice at the end of a baseball bat might kill her.

Would you celebrate her death if she was to meet such a fate for making an ignorant comment?

CdT


Probably, as she clearly has nothing to offer that could benefit society or mankind as a whole except ignorance and stupidty, and that we have in abundance, so her death would only make the world a better place.

Aren't you late for your Klan meeting?


What does hating ignorance and stupidity have to do with the Klan?

I've already stated quite clearly in an earliet thread, this isn't about colour, it's about having very little intelligence and personal accountibility.

I'm sorry, I don't see the connection.

Could you inform me please..

There is a side issue to it that is inflaming tensions..

Maybe I'm just paranoid but it looks to me like some folks want a... Race war isn't the right words...

Possibly if we get them fighting each other they won't notice we are looting the last of money, type of thing...

I dunno it's hard to follow sometimes from half a world away.

In fact, in this thread you are the only person to alude to the color of her skin, while everyone esle has focused on her lack of intelligence and sensibility.

I sincerley hope one day this young lady desperately needs the help of the local Police Dept.

So where are all the people crying freedom of speech? If she did this on her own time the company has no right to fire but if she did it on company time then they have the right. Funny how people support the idea that a person is on company time 24/7 if the company wants to do that then they need to start paying accordingly.


What is a subway sandwich artist anyways? All I can think of is she could lose her job and waste all that skill....No where to go but down from there...



So just because she wasn't working a high paying job it's ok for a company to control every aspect of her life? Or is it that blacks who work low paying jobs have no rights in your eyes.


So, your making it a race, rather than what is is, issue?

No, because literally nothing you said you were going to do impacts the companies directly. As you said, you're not an employee. They can't do anything to you, and I doubt anybody would pay any attention to you whatsoever.

Well wouldn't it have reflected more positively on the company if she had been sent to sensitivity training or something?

Rather than taking sides on a social issue, it would have shown the company is doing something to make a difference. To help people change their perceptions and grow.

The perceptions this young lady has are rooted so deep that they'll never leave.

Day after day the MSM sell her stories of -

BLACK man dies in custody

BLACK man dies in paddy wagon

BLACK man dies after being tasered

So, she lives, eats, breathes and sleeps the stories she's spoon fed.

She doesn't want to see the sunnier side of the street.

You know Andy, I was born in 1976. Born in Flint, Michigan but raised in a ritzy suburb outside it. My step-father worked at GM. Got in really early, when it was jackpot to land a job for the automobile industry. Stock options, and all that.

So, anyways I was raised by a mother who lived the riots back in the day when you and I were getting our butt's smacked by the doctor.

So my mother tells me the story of her experience of racism and I'll share it here. So living in Flint, my grandparents and mother were dirt poor. They lived on one side of the street, black people the other. Mt. Luther King St divided the territories. She was chased home by a mob from school, (a black teacher had committed suicide at the school and racial tensions were high) and had to run all the way home from Beecher Middle School. She had to run like the wind, cause they were carrying baseball bats. This was instigated by her approaching her black friend, they were in middle school and everyone played together, who was in a group with older kids. She turned around, incited and angry with things my Mom didn't really understand and said "Get her!"

And you know what - my Mama - she still taught me not to assume, or jump on the band wagon of hate. That you don't take sides in a community that is suppose to work together. You don't add to the schism in the village. Instead you build bridges.

Barf. This is not discrimination. Discrimination isn't just something you get to stand up and yell in a crowded movie theater every time you don't get your way. They GAVE this person a job. sure, she can say whatever she wants... but as soon as it reflects poorly on the employer they have every right to react appropriately by disassociating themselves from the employee. Why this is even in question is probably the dumbest thing I've heard in weeks.

A Subway sandwich artist who hailed the murders of two Mississippi police officers on social media faced a fierce online backlash Sunday that threatened her job.

Sierra (C-Babi) Mccurdy wrote on Facebook “2 police officers was shot in Hattiesburg tonight!” according to screengrabs circulating online. “Got em.”

Subway employee celebrates Miss. cops' death on Facebook

Put this little tidbit here because I don't think it really fits into the PC realm, as that's not why it interests me. What interests me is the "sandwich artist" (why, Subway? Why?) makes a couple of posts regarding the slaying of two cops and gets fired over it. Personally, I think it's the franchisee's right to do that if they wish, but I don't know the state employment laws.

Her second post was about turning "this bxtch(sic) into Baltimore." My understanding is she doesn't even live in Hattiesburg but I'm not 100% on that.

Thus far, Subway has not returned any requests for comment, but the online backlash against them seems to be coming in fast and furious.


As long is the employee is a lawful citizen, I do not see what business it should be to the employer. I don't think that jurisdiction over acceptable behavior outside of work should be given businesses and media trends.


Not true I'm afraid, her actions/comments have bought her employers name into "Disrepute" and thus they can fire her for Gross Misconduct. I have 360 employees and last year fired 2 employees for remarks they made on Social Media and introduced a policy that negates any further issues arising from employees mouthing off on Social Media.

Lets put it this way, before Social Media, would it have been acceptable for someone to go into the middle of their residential street to start airing their dirty laundry? NO! Bad mouthing your employer or associating yourself with something when others know who you are employed by brings the companies name into disrepute and thus she deserved to be fired!

Sensitivity training?

Because everybody responds so well when a cop does something and his/her punishment is "sensitivity training," right?

It's like a game of organized social gang stalking and public shaming. I can't believe anyone would condone it or willing participate in it.

When is enough enough? When does she get to be treated like a human being again, who has feelings? Regrets, fear, isolation.

It boggles my mind, and highlights the dangers of social media. I think I might have to delete my accounts. I can get pretty heated in argument and say things I don't mean....
