You know walk out now right. You know especially illegal and you do so. Bob I appreciate the call yeah there was a company if you just joined us a retirement on masonry company in commerce city Colorado. I date without a day without immigrants.

And the owner told him if you don't show up for work tomorrow on this day where you're you're you wanna go protest you're gonna be fired. They didn't show up for work. They got fired. I know the company is a boat to building company at like two to South Carolina. 21 employees reported an assembly line. They didn't show up. They were all fired. Some of these are companies are saying they had no warning. That to their employees were not going to not to show. Up from BlueLinx Steve you're inevitably you know good afternoon. It's a good.

That may call it where you are just be all and all. Consideration. Well as Steve for example if if if somebody were in that situation and they didn't call in and you you marked him well the information would be retroactive Buick than that you do Chase Utley chased the judgment. Exactly yeah but not fictional network don't call and. You don't get terminated the true. It QB Colin more protests are actually more negative vacation ever and if you don't situation that it will work. All of you I will be term. Companies these days don't work as shall work. And in and see diagram what happens though is that some people will take it like this okay these people got fired. Because. The we're expressing their freedom of of a speech no that's not why they were fired they were fired because they didn't show while at work. I Steve and I appreciate the call. Advertise solicit. From Harvey Rhonda year under BW Augen afternoon. Our small ball I thought you I'm not a lot out. Of I spoke. Jolly. I'm honored that you sing. Okay. To call. Oh. Boy. Why. Are. Yeah I do is there's there was a story out that there were Cisco this planned protest a day without immigrants and there was. It was designed to show what would happen if the illegal immigrants who are working didn't show up well. You understand that there are a lot of businesses that we suffer when these businesses suffered a name is some of them fired the people who took today off. Wait a while it. All well. I. Didn't. They maybe chipped it. It. Oh. You. See. That. It. Hey. That at. All. But you. Ron Ron I run to let me interrupt I'm gonna I'm gonna have to go to CBS news or grade do you hold on through the news and off finish our conversation. All right you just just hang on. There's a lot of confusion about this and we'll talk about this to reconnect after CBS news followed by RW WL news updates. All right I Rondo was sent talking about tonight if if the information abouts no. And a day without immigrants was was on the news in the employers centers should have made to. Contingency plans. LeBron that and that's not really fair to the employers because first of all you can assume that people are gonna take part in that and and a protest called at the last minute doesn't necessarily mean that you give people the opportunity to go protest if you have a business Iran. Yeah can. The whole. The only what it would if you you know you have a responsibility to deliver products and and what if this event that there would be a delay. In delivering the products. It. We chewing it. May. Null. Or are able. Should. We even. There is it at all. Well I'll call all. Doubt. You know. Why it. The matter is. Local. All. It they are. Well. I think those days are little different because there they're their special this was on last minute thing and to be you know I think you and I gonna disagree on that note that's OK but I I just you know. And if you if you don't your McGee far. So. We can't let out. It. To. Let you don't. Rhonda you know you're gonna afternoon in the West Bank Troy a year and Debbie WL. Good afternoon it is Robert Cree. Or the ball but law employers are under no obligation. To give anyone time off to a group of Boca Britain. Expert what you're and we hear there's a right to work. In employer can walk you had any problems or is a long. Or no longer needed for any reason as long that it's not become one of the protective Wear wearing. Age marital status and the and so mean Coca. So these people think we're entitled to you work with me wanna leave doubts part of the problem that's going on people. Don't wanna respect. Or the whether it's their job or the police department story and eat it because they wanna do it. That they can do you don't show what work. You want your father I used to Warren. Didn't open seven days a week including Christmas. In airport body. Christmas Day if you do not sure what. You were. Because it's not clear everyone else who worked we need to start the call. Now go competent policy. Other different but that is not the with the law if you own your own business you can make up policies all you want. And the employer or to let people. Yeah I mean I and I understand and and if you don't like the policies of a company rules and go work somewhere else. Works somewhat if it really does mean that one narrow one a lot of people think that just because they believe that's why. They can do she and her. Or what bothers me about this in this is just so typical of what happens you know of people. Even though it's just an average citizens they try to to to to find the headline it will will define the moment and that the headline if we get a lot of attention is. I'm workers fired for expressing their first amendment rights. No that's not what this is about this is about not showing up at work it has nothing to do with expressing your first amendment rights. And hard look at some grimace sort of but. Even more important the king day if the businesses generally open or Morton McCain that you were worker is scheduled to work. Out Monday. In you don't sure well because you wanted to remarks and operate your order. Well it's it's true I think of all the businesses along the parade routes that are catering to the people who are going to the parade because that's their business to two. Sell food or to sell trees or whatever and then they're they're catering to the world that is is it joined Martin Luther King Jr. day. Work. That Troy I appreciate the call at your insight if you wanna join us with your comment to our numbers 26 no way seventy. Erica 05042601. A seventy text number is 87870. Something was invented on this day in non. I actually was demonstrated for the first time on this day in 1947. And it may be something long before your phones. That you have used. Specific part of the baby boomer generation to tell you about delegate toward your calls when we come back I'm skirts and if you'll. It was on this day February it's funny first 1947. That the Polaroid camera was demonstrated for their very first time member of the Polaroid. Self developing film produced black and white. Photographs and X sixty seconds. I mean here and now you got your phone and you can see the pictures right away if it. And NC with a Polaroid you needed to go to anybody to get in developed. So a lot of people are used. Polaroid's. Bought I got it to our finishers are here. Instincts. My dad had a Polaroid camera and went there to answer because of my mom had just since we. It with truth is it. That stigma out of a different in this instance and I here's an update on a pretty general opinion poll do you agree. They weren't that bad but it was still something I didn't need to see. Do you agree with. Do you agree with the city of New Orleans are removing physical barriers. That people put up to preserve their spaces for a Mardi Gras parades 98%. Say yes they agree. Only 2% say no they do not Jackie joined a VW got a good afternoon Jack. It. You know I want you can't even vote for them proper documentation. And the proper augmentation. Program. Shown. Here. In the paper actually it is. The ending and there's. Can. And that people. If the war. That we have here yet good news so. Recoup and get an adage of gold in eight days. We hear that receive debt that was the the goal of the today with counts immigrants protest through to show how on much apart they are off our. Daily economy. Like well. And it might be might be worthy cause but you can't just not shall work. Out and on. To various. If it. Should be. Might be better if we don't hear. These. Galleries in the news actions. The. Don't know what they're different. Yet there are a lot of jobs that ten cannot be filled by Americans units in San. BP. Want to do a whole situation as far as much as an intern a boat paper match that you. Who is on again war. No I'm. It's a question. Did you go out and question its operation question. It is definitely sort of do the hard yeah. Jacqui right about that and is not easy to studies it change things but did the fact remains that the situation we have now is that there are a lot of people. On who owned businesses. Run businesses and they find it difficult to fill those spots with. American workers and they find themselves in a position of having to hire illegal immigrants as wrong as as that is. Here's a text Ascot this is a topic for another day. It always bothers me with convention bureau talks about the great economic impact of morning draw Jazz Fest NBA all star game. And all we ever hear is how broke the city is can't fix streets can't pay police what happens if the all star game. Hadn't fallen in our laps where does the Montego. Just curious that from handedly if you had you know I brought that up on the show and I think what happens is. The city of New Orleans. Does not get an appropriate share of the revenue. Because of politicians or in other parts of the state that really don't like New Orleans. And they take a disproportionate. Amount of the money we should not have an industry. That is number one. Like hospitality. And indeed does bother me too they brag about how much money came in over the weekend and yet the city's broke we should not be broke. And I don't know what it's gonna take but it's gonna takes a politicians in this area. I guess finding a way to stand up to those in other parts of the state and end. And and realize that our city is a very vital part of generating revenue for the for the for the entire state. Really back. But it bureau. Coming up nexus sports talk to Bobby Hebert and the ability a lot of people heart talking abouts. The pelicans not only did Anthony Davis had 52 points of the all star game. It because of the trade with DeMarcus Cousins. Suddenly the pelicans are getting a lot of attention and Deke Bellavia Bobby Avery are we talking about that and other sports coming up next.
