First off, these firings were an absolute joke! Especially since nobody complained about the emails. At most, these workers should have gotten a warning for this very minimal offense. The people up P&G are a real bunch of scumbags for doing this to people when there are no other jobs similar out there. I can't believe that these poor people have to fight to even get unemployment to pay bills and feed their families. I hope the people up at P&G realize how bad this makes them look.
