What does any of that have to do with her working at Subway? Did she write those messages using the Subway page or was she holding a sign while wearing her uniform? If not, why connect the two?

Nobody should be fired for voicing their opinions unless that person is a known spokesperson for the company or doing it while representing. If a company holds those standards for minimum wage employees then they need to pay them 24/7 for living up to Subway ethics while off the clock. Off the clock is off the clock.



So would you be ok with me working at say, the Welfare office, but during my off time I celebrate the deaths of black people at the hands of police on Facebook?

It seems our rights are free from government intrusion but not private employers.
Scratch that, the government won't let us exercise them freely either.
Live accordingly or suffer the consequences is all I can say.

A thug is not ethnically specific. There are thugs from all walks of life and creeds and colors too. Just because some rapper claims"thug lyfe" Dont mean its about their ethnicity. Code words....the respite of the control freak and liar.

Just love the way everyone bitches about "Government Intrusion or Employers Intrusion" into our private lives. And then we get folk complaining that "Too Much Government this, to much Government that", what would you all like as an alternative? A total Libertarian lifestyle does not exists, or it could but it would be more akin to "Mad Max" than any govermentless utopia!

Perhaps we should have something like the "Purge" where all law and order is suspended for a week, no government intrusion, no employers to worry about and no police. You have to survive alone with no help, how many folk on here would live to tell the tale afterwards?

We have governments to govern, as we sheeple do not play nicely and get along that well, so our elected officials have to make sure that law and order is sustained. Can you imagine ATS without the MODS? It would last a day tops before the regulars left in their droves, such is the same for the US, how many of you would still want to live in the land of teh free if there was no authority to keep things in check.

When whining about "Government Control" think about the alternative!

I missed your comment, sorry.

The online reaction is referenced in the article. As to any comments replying to her post, I don't know. No article I've read says anything about them.

Well, I was born in 1972, I grew up in the north of England with Bangladeshis, Pakistanis, Indians, Jamaicans, West indians, and even vietnamese boat people. There was always a bit of name calling, but I never remember any violence, any rate hate.

The majority had take away restaurants, and the only problem they had was on a Saturday night after the bars emptied and the drunks, who didn't say boo Monday to Friday started with "gunga Din" etc. but that was the extent.

They in their turn, never bothered anybody.

This girl has grown with a ghetto mentality, and if you don't get out of the ghetto and see the real world, the mentality never leaves you.

You can say what you like, just don't say it in uniform because what you say may be interpreted as the policy and thoughts of the company who's uniform your wearing..It's common sense.

For example:

[snipped]

The above is a no no...why...beacuse he's in uniform..

It's just a shame she hasn't got any common sense to understand it..

Which of he rights were infringed upon?

She was free to say whatever she wanted and so she did.

Her work was free to apply a consequnce to her actions and so they did.

Where is the intrusion on her rights?

I get the sneaking feeling there are maybe some people on this thread who would just love to say -

"They fired her because she's, you know..she's...well..you know...black. If this girl had been white they would'nt have sacked her."

I think theres a huge group of people just waiting and wanting to turn this into a race problem...because they can't accept that this is about wholesale stupidity, everything has to have a race angle.

I'm actually suprised the MSM hasn't put BLACK WOMAN SAKED FROM SUBWAY for critising dead police.

So pretty much the moral of the story in this thread is that if you say something offensive your employer has every right to fire you as it makes them look bad.

So no one will complain about Donald Sterling anymore, people should be now calling for that guy in duck dynastys job.
Clarkson from top gear didn't get a raw deal.
The lady at the Boston uni should lose hers as well as that lady from the highschool.

Glad we all got this straight.
Or is this different cause it was about cops?

Clarkson put hands on somebody - different.

Duck Dynasty - people routinely call for A&E to cancel the show every time one of them says something ignorant. A&E thinks the attention is worth it.

Donald Sterling - got fired over it and I don't recall too many people aside from Sterling himself complaining about it.

It's different because this moron showed her ass and connected herself to Subway, and brought them into it. Subway decided the attention wasn't worth it. So are we going to complain now because some employers don't particular care what their employees say and others do?

People reutinely still defend them here. Just do a search on duck dynasty or Sterling and you will see.

I don't have issue with the employers per se, just with the the flip flop on the issue if the employer can fire for what you said if it can been seen as offensive and puts out a bad image.

I think your issue is with cops in general. It can be a thread about cupcakes and you come along....."I bet a cop poisoned them." Dead cops, Crooked cops, hot cops, at least you do not discriminate with that.

Did I say anything close to that in this thread?

My only issue is it seems the only reason people are behind this firing is cause she offended the police.

I don't wish harm on cops and neve have.

Hardly. I've gone eye to eye with Sremmos in God only knows how many threads. I think we've legitimately agreed on something twice. Literally.

I wouldn't describe him/her as pro-LE, but they're not a cop hater either. We don't often agree on what's "right" or what's "fair" but he/she a) sticks to their beliefs and b) owns it when they're proved to be incorrect on something.

Get outta here with your ad hominem crap.

That's your opinion. Hence my previous post. Blame it on the police being offended, because some dirt bag got fired. Did you see where she had pictures up in her employment uniform? Most companies have policies and procedures relating to this.

a reply to: LoverBoy

And I already said she should have gotten fired and that I have no issue with it. It was the first post I made on here.
Where did I blame the cops?

All I have said is that if it is the case here, then it needs to be the case when other people say things that offend people and hold a private job.

And not that employers have to fire people for statements, but if they do, it is thier right to do so.

Maybe read all I had to say on the matter before assuming my stance?
