We see it too often; people fired over little things that could be easily corrected, or even things out of their control. Workers are being treated worse than customers. Employers are bullying their employees. This was one of the main reasons I was hesitant to get into a fast-food job. But after the pandemic, money got tight. I was not eligible for unemployment, and I needed cash to pay for next semester's college expenses. So I had no other choice but to apply for a job at Wendy's. Within a week I was interviewed. The woman who interviewed me stressed that I would be "family" and that they would not judge me for anything. If I ever needed a ride home, I should ask and they'd happily provide one. 

Well, on July 1st, 2020, I was terminated because I had unexpected transportation troubles while on my way to work. I called three times letting them know the situation but they argued that I should've warned them 2 hours earlier. I explained that 2 hours earlier I was asleep; there was no way I could've known. Still, I was scolded harshly by the manager, Tammy Ashcraft, and told that I "screwed them over". I was thrown out like garbage. I wanted to ask the assistant manager, Brittany Basinger, to talk to the manager, but the two ladies are engaged, so she most likely would've agreed with her fiance.

Wendy's needs to review who they're assigning as managers, make sure their employees are getting treated nicely, and understand that unexpected transportation issues are inevitable and shouldn't result in immediate termination. The 4 hours worth of training videos I watched during orientation made it clear that Wendy's cared deeply about employees, and that the team is all one big, happy family. I was not treated like I was family, at all.

Please help me hold Wendy's responsible for unjustly terminating me (and probably many others).

This particular Wendy's is located at 1125 N Dixie Hwy, Monroe, MI 48162
