Marriott Just Fired An Employee Because She's A Democrat

Marriott fired a long-term employee, a Democrat, because she’s running for a seat on her local county commission. And it just so happens that Marriott supports her Republican opponent.
Marriott Just Fired An Employee Because She's A Democrat

Should a politically active Democrat be fired from a long-term job at a major corporation because she's politically active?

Here's what happened with Viviana Janer this week:

*Viviana is a Puerto Rico-born-female-MBA and long-term internal auditor for Marriott — and a Democrat who has openly worked for social justice in her county

*Viviana decided to run against an incumbent Republican for the Osceola County Commission

*Viviana didn’t notify Marriott about her campaign because she was conducting it in her spare time and was a nearly-unfunded long-shot

* Marriott’s former parent company went and donated $1,000 to her Republican opponent’s campaign

* When Marriott found out that she was running against their Republican choice for the office, they fired Viviana citing “a conflict of interest” for the company

Seriously?
