VICTORY: Pizza Hut Offers Job Back to Manager Who Refused to Open on Thanksgiving

PizzaHutsmaller

Tony Rohr, the manager of an Elkhart, Indiana, Pizza Hut, was fired for refusing to force his employees to work on Thanksgiving. He had worked at Pizza Hut for nearly 10 years—but after he spoke up at a work meeting saying he wouldn’t open his restaurant on the holiday, he was asked to sign a letter of resignation. That’s why Elkhart resident Jeremiah Wade started a MoveOn Petition to Pizza Hut CEO Scott Bergren, telling him to give Rohr his job back. The petition gathered more than 4,000 signatures. Pizza Hut offered to rehire Rohr and announced on Facebook that they fully respect an employee’s right not to work on a holiday.
