Tony Rohr says he doesn't think people should have to work on a holiday like Thanksgiving.http://www.live5news.com/...
Rohr worked at Pizza Hut for more than ten years, but says he was fired recently because he refused to open on Thanksgiving.
Rohr started at Pizza Hut as a cook and worked his way up to being a general manager of the Jackson Boulevard Pizza Hut in Elkhart.
Pizza Hut is a division of giant YUM! Brands which employs many thousands in its many stores which also include the KFC and Taco Bell brands. YUM! is hugely profitable and certainly has the right to decide its own hours of operation.
However, its customers and citizen advocates can decide to eat elsewhere during the holidays in a show of protest.
Ex- manager Rohr says it better than I can:
"Thanksgiving and Christmas are the only two days that they're closed in the whole year and they're the only two days that those people are guaranteed to have off and spend it with their families," Rohr said.Well said.
His letter went on to say, "I hope you realize that it's the people at the bottom of the totem pole that make your life possible."
