Patricia Kunkle says the owner threatened employees with termination last year if President Obama was re-elected. The owner allegedly said that Obama supporters would be the first to be let go.
Kunkle says her voting preferences came up in a conversation the day after the election and that she was fired Nov. 9, just two days after the conversation about her voting preferences and three days after the election. The owner told her the termination was “in the best interests of the company.”
Q-Mark’s lawyer says: “Ms. Kunkle was laid off for economic reasons – nothing more.”
