A restaurant in Catoosa has fired 12 of its employees after they failed to show up to work in support of “A day without immigrants.”

KTUL.com reported:

A dozen workers at a Catoosa restaurant are without a job after getting fired for skipping work as a show of support for “A Day Without Immigrants.” The restaurant workers are all Hispanic and say it was important to them to participate in the national protest. But they didn’t think it would cost them their jobs. “They feel like they’ve been unfairly terminated,” said a friend, translating for the employees. The group worked at I Don’t Care Bar and Grill in Catoosa. They talked to us after they were fired for not showing up to work. They asked us not to show their faces or give their names. “(They’ve) been working there for almost two years since the restaurant opened,” said the friend. The group willingly chose to stay home with others across the country, supporting “A Day Without Immigrants.”
