That said, this story of Target firing a pro-union employee sucks. We don't know all the facts, and likely never will, but the ironically Red store better have crossed all its Ts and dotted all of its Is on this firing.
Even if Target had a reason for termination that doesn't run afoul of the law, the timing is awfully suspicious.
She was the face of the failed campaign to make a Valley Stream, L.I., store the first unionized Target in the country. Again and again she told media outlets she was struggling to raise her daughter on what she earned as a Target sales floor team member.
Now, Tashawna Green, 21, of Jamaica, Queens, no longer has her $8-per-hour job. A Target supervisor fired her earlier this month, seven weeks after workers voted not to join United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1500.
