21 (the article says 15, but I heard their lawyer say 21 on FNC) immigrants were fired for taking the day off of work to attend the protests yesterday. The company stated that absences would not be excused for that day, but these people decided it was more important than their job. Their choice, now they have to face the consequences of their choice.
The company had to shut down for the day because the workers they had expected to be there didn't bother to show up. They had more important things to do. Just too bad this isn't fwance.
