    I guess someone didn't like a black woman defending herself.

    Does it matter? It could be company policy not to engage someone on the Stations FB account. Who knows.

    The station is prejudice against women with short hair....:doubt:

    She should be able to get her personnel file and have legal counsel look at the situation.

    The policy of the Station is that you do not respond to these type of comments but refer them to a certain manager at the Station. Did any of you actually watch the Video, it is clearly explained.

    Yeah they said that, while the employee also said that that policy, if it exists at all, isn't written down anywhere, so somebody's acting on some very shaky ground here. Probably both parties are.

    There another right winger goes again, sticking his nose into what goes on between business and labor.

    If that is the policy the station should have no problem showing they explained it to her.

    You right-wing Nutter's think unions are a gift from the devil, but THIS is an example of what you get when the workers have no input or control over their employment.

    Without a union working conditions stipulation, you work solely and exclusively at the discretion of the boss. In other words, they can fire you for any reason, or no reason at all, and there's not a damn thing anybody can do about it. Don't like it? Tough shit.

    Get used to it. This is your future if the GOP ever gets its way.
