Woman Fired for Not Showing Up to Work During Hurricane Irma

Woman Fired for Not Showing Up to Work During Hurricane Irma

Lisa Santamaria is a single mother of two who also lives with her 70-year old mother. To support her household, she works at a Homestead nursing home. At least she did until Hurricane Irma. “I love my job and I really don’t want to be fired,” Santamaria said.

    Tough call. The employer did offer shelter and health care workers have a responsibility. She did not explain fully why she didn’t want to go other than “feel”.

    That’s a bit over the top.

    It’s not like she’s a stripper or something…

    I bet that manager stayed home during the storm, because he can. After Wilma hit, FEMA had a food stamp program or something right up the street at the flea market and the turnpike and all major roads got packed; a 30 minute drive took 1-1/2 hrs. My manager had a short drive from Coral Springs and said he was turning around and going home because of the traffic. More hypocrites but he lost his job a year later anyway.
