Burgerville updates uniform rules to ban buttons after Portland workers wear pro-immigration pins

Burgerville says it's banning employees from wearing buttons with statements and any other non-work approved items on their uniforms after 10 workers at a Northeast Portland branch were sent home in August for wearing pro-immigration pins.

The fast-food business announced Thursday that it's updating its written uniform policy so it "represents our long-standing commitment to creating a universally welcoming and inclusive environment for our customers and employees alike," according to a statement from Burgerville Human Resources Director Liz Graham. The new policy goes into effect next Thursday and forbids items on workers' uniforms that have political and personal messages.

The 10 employees at the Northeast Glisan Street and 82nd Avenue Burgerville wore buttons that said, "No one is illegal," and called for the elimination of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The employees returned to work the next day, received back pay and continued to wear the buttons, the company and the Burgerville Workers Union said.

A union spokesman said he is still reviewing the company statement and declined to immediately provide a comment Thursday.

2. Hey there!

I think we are admitting our age bracket by knowing the movie reference.

Oh well, this seems to be one of the big stories coming out of Oregon tonight so I thought I would post it since it's good for a laugh.

3. The news seems to be getting more bizarre by the day!

But at least we can laugh at this one! As soon as I read the subject line, I thought of looking for a photo of Jennifer Aniston sporting her "flair," and then I read the rest of your post!
