    Yes, they're at work.

    So far, no one has lost their job, no one has been punished.

    They still have the 1st Amendment Right when at work.

    By saying "they don't have a 1st Amendment Right" because they are at work would mean that the government would be able to infringe on their freedom of speech at work.

    However, in this case, the government (i.e Trump) is getting rather close to indirectly infringing on their 1st Amendment Right by making strongly worded "recommendations" to their employer, and instigating a boycott of their employer.

    Trump should shut his fucking mouth about everything.

    They should be forced to listen to that annoying song hour after hour. I prefer root canal myself.

    No, they don't. The 1st Amendment does not cover you while you are at work. You can be fired for exactly what these people are doing.

    No, Trump saying the owners firing them would be awsome to see isn't anything related to the 1st Amendment. He has 1st Amendment rights as well.

    Those stupid fucking players shouldn't fucking insult the people paying their salaries...and I mean the customers, not the owners..

    You don't have 1st Amendment Rights here on U.S.......
