    So evidently firing employees just doing their job is easier than standing up to a person higher than them on the pity pole complaining.

    Portland bakery fires employees for denying black woman service after closing

    So zero evidence of racism, but the employees were fired anyway.

    Naturally they are also trying to blame the "alt-right" for messing with them being douches.

    Soon businesses will have to do away with business hours because it limits minorities access or something.

    "In one statement, the bakery admitted that the employees did not necessarily do anything wrong, "this is more about how a black woman was made to feel" at the business." :rolleyes:

    After closing? How many places do you know that praise when employees keep store open past hours?
    I ran a Pizza Hut a while back. If i would have got caught doing that? Written up or fired.
    Hek, if we were to enter an order past our scheduled time, corporate would have been calling and bitching me out.

    Yes even after closing I still would have served anyone as long as customers are in the establishment.

    My experience has been that a business will normally lock it's doors at closing time. Anyone that makes it inside before the doors are locked get service. There may be a "last call" to buy before they close their cash registers.
