    Federal charges have been filed alleging that Carlos was actually fired in retaliation for his role as a leader in the fast food workers movement.
    Federal charges?  There is only one entity in the country that is authorized to file "charges" based on a Federal statute:  The Department of Justice.

    Someone has been criminally indicted over the treatment Carlos Hernandez received from his employer?  Please provide a link because I am very curious to see how these charges were brought to a court.

    Or do you mean that a civil suit has been filed by Carlos or someone on his behalf?  Or do you mean a complaint has been filed with the NLRB by Carlos claiming that he was treated unlawfully?

    Please elaborate and/or link to the court documents.

      Fast food workers filed Federal charges against the Subway fast food chain for firing striker Carlos Hernandez in retaliation for his leadership role in this summer’s fast food strikes.

      The Federal cases name management of the local Subway store where Carlos worked, as well as the chain’s corporate parent based in Milford, Connecticut.

      The Subway chain has agreed at the national level to take responsibility for labor standards at all their stores, whether franchised or corporate owned. Federal labor law clearly bars retaliation against workers for striking.

      (Here's a link to Subway corporate taking ownership of labor issues.)
