A store manager of a Pizza Hut franchise, named Tony Rohr in Indiana is mulling over a rehire offer from the worldwide pizza chain after he was fired for refusing to open the restaurant on Thanksgiving Day.
The decision to dismiss the general manager, Tony Rohr, from his job at the company’s location in Elkhart, Ind., quickly sparked online outcry, as people rallied behind Rohr and announced plans to avoid the chain in the future.
Rohr previously told local television station WSBT 22 that Pizza Hut should take a stand against the corporate norm to ask workers to come in on Thanksgiving. The day, he said, should be spent with family.
“I said why can’t we be the company that stands up and says we care about our employees and they can have the day off,” Rohr told WSBT 22.”
