The manager of the ironically named “I Don’t Care” Bar and Grill in Catoosa, Oklahoma is hiring…
After firing 12 staff last week for violating his “no call/no show” policy.
Fox Baltimore reports that the workers 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 owner fired them by text message.
A message to one of the employees reads: “You and your family are fired. I hope you enjoyed your day off, and you can enjoy many more. Love you.”

The group willingly chose to stay home with others across the country, supporting “A Day Without Immigrants.”
“(They’re) upset they stood for something they felt was necessary so the community would stand together, and they got terminated for that,” said the friend.
Restaurant owner Bill McNally gave us a written statement, saying he has a “zero tolerance policy for no show/no call incidents and the 12 employees violated that policy.”
