NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ — Bill Donohue comments on Macy’s treatment of legal immigrant workers:
In June of 2013, Macy’s paid a civil penalty of $175,000 after the U.S. Justice Department determined that the company had engaged in unfair documentary practices against work-authorized immigrants. The government found that although these workers were already legally permitted to work in the United States, Macy’s demanded documentation from them that they don’t require other employees to submit. Some of these employees suffered economic harm due to this unfair burden, in the form of lost wages or seniority.
Since first exposing Macy’s firing of a man for his Catholic beliefs (click here), we have in recent days documented Macy’s mistreatment of a military veteran, a pregnant woman, elderly widows, and immigrants. And we are just getting started. It is indeed a sordid history.
