A friend just got fired for suggesting that they have a black lives matter special and donation jar at work. Anyone in north looking for a really reliable lead barista?

@silver They got fired just for making a suggestion? WTF is going on down there? I take comfort in thinking the PNW is not like, idk, Texas.

@dlek Said her using the job as a platform for her politics was inappropriate. They also donate sack lunches to the local police, so that's where this d-bag owner is coming from.

@silver Sad to hear about your friend. That sucks.

People shouldn't lose their jobs for making suggestions, or for supporting social change.

@dlek social change is bad for business, dont-cha-know!

@silver Which coffee shop should I be avoiding?
