Trader Joe’s is facing a boycott after firing of one of its New York employees.
Ben Bonnema, a New York man, took to Twitter on Friday to share his experience of being fired from his job at the Trader Joe’s location on New York City’s Upper West Side. He said he had asked the company to better protect its workers against the coronavirus.
Bonnema shared the letter he sent to the grocery chain’s CEO, in which he requested five COVID-19-related changes, including stricter mask requirements, enhanced filtration, and a “three strike policy” for dealing with uncooperative shoppers in the stores.
