'Now Hiring Must Be Mexican' Says Burger King Sign
A Burger King in Ephrata, Wash., recently posted the words "Now Hiring Must be Mexican" on its sign.
KFFM.com posted a picture of the sign and asked its readers, "I’m not exactly sure of the reasoning. Maybe none of the current staff can speak espanol or perhaps they need to fulfill their EEO report, I’m not exactly sure. What do you think? Do you find this sign offensive or are you okay with their honesty.”
So far, 82 percent of their readers say the sign is offensive, which seems to be the same percentage of people who have slammed Burger King on its official Facebook page.
The Facebook comments have included:
Tell all of Burger King to take their company to Mexico and abide by legal hiring practices here in the good ole USA – This is NOT MEXICO.
What's up with the racist sign? Now I know why I don't and never will eat at Booger King.
Your racist ways will lead to your demise. I saw your recent discriminatory chain advertisement about only hiring Mexicans. What about Blacks and Whites? Do we have a chance in this country anymore? I'm ashamed to have ever eaten at your establishment. Never again...
