About half of the latest wave of 700 returning Oregon Guardsmen didn’t have civilian jobs before they were deployed, a U.S. Labor Department official said Tuesday. Other members of the 2nd Battalion, 162nd Infantry, which arrived home last week, lost their jobs while they were on active duty.
This is easy. Everyone has been saying how they support the troops. Anti-war protesers can show their support by quitting their jobs so the returning veterans can have them. If they are unwilling to do this, their employers can fire them and hire the veterans. If it’s OK for Playgirl to fire an editor for being Republican, it’s OK for employers to fire someone for being an anti-war protester.
