Are we supposed to feel sorry for them? If they didn't know the rules of their job that's their problem. Thanks for sharing your complete waste of space story with us.
Policy is in place for a reason. They new the rules and choose to break them. I hope they realize that and do better in the future.
This is as cheap as it gets, give these guys a break. Who can really blame them for wanting a picture of them with one of the best QB's of all time ? I can't. Total b.s.
ON HIS OWN TIME. NO RULES BROKEN. ON HIS OWN TIME HE CAN DO AS HE WISHES WITHIN HIS RIGHTS.
That's like saying if a guy was working at a dynamite factory and walks around the plant with a lite cigarette after he punches out, then wonders why he was fired for it. "Hey? I was off the clock, yo! I can do what I wants!"
Hey could of just been star struck and not used his head and remembered the rules... A warning should of been enough... Hire him back.
this guy really can't complain - he broke rules that as a part of his employment he agreed to abide by, whether he was still at his post or not, he was still ON THE CLOCK and being paid. Plus in Texas, it is a right to work state, which means that the employer can fire you for any reason they want to and they really don't have to tell you. They can dislike the color of your shirt and let you go. Sorry but he broke the rules, whether people think its right or wrong. His reasons as to why they fired him are so ludicrous. I'm waiting for him to file some kind of wrongful termination lawsuit and claim it was racially motivated. You break the rules, you will have to deal with the consequences. Whether or not you have ever been disciplined before or not doesn't matter, you still did wrong
I think a formal warning would have sufficed. Termination seems a little harsh.
If you read the article they were on the clock and even if they weren't, they were still on the premises which would still subjugate them to the rules. That being said firing them if they have no previous history of discipline is an extreme measure and they should have subjected them to a progressive disciplinary process.
...look, Williams just figured the rules / policies don't apply to 'black' people. He should do well in 'public administration' where the rules don't apply to the administrators.
