Jobcase, Inc. is observing #juneteenth today. We wish you a day of enlightenment as we all pause to consider racial inequities that continue these 157 years since Texas got on board w the emancipation proclamation. Yes solemnly celebrate the ending of our original sin of slavery, but moreso let’s pause this day to educate ourselves on history and think what we can do to make things better today.
I worked here for about 3 months in the 3 months I worked 6 days a week some times 7 I would pull doubles and my staff loved me. I was so committed to this job that even when my father past on the the 19th of March I still didn’t request time off because the GM (Rony) needed the help. I then was coming up on the end of my 90 days (4 days shy of it) and I was fired because I wasn’t a “good fit”. I’m not sure someone who knows every door dasher by name and is there 6 days a week could be “not a good fit”. The day prior to being let go me and the GM (Rony) got into a disagreement because he looked out the back door and claimed “the Seattle riots are starting” I then being the other manager on shift looked as well and came to realize he was stereotyping the 3-5 African American men standing outside their cars talking. I then also realized one of them works for the jimmy johns next door. I then said that it was disgusting that he seen a group of black men and IMMEDIATELY had everyone exit out stores and locked the doors because the “riots” there was also 2 police cars parked right there not worried about these young men. #BLM
