Hold the fries please

From Wampum:

Late last year triballaw saw a case where a burger place, that employed about 20 Diné fired one of the workers for speaking Diné (aka “Navajo”). MB posted on this at the time, you can find the original here. Then we had a note out of the Los Angeles Indian community (quick: what is the largest Indian city in the US?) about Micky Dee having scholarships for Afro-American and Spanish-American college-bound youth, but nada for Indian college-bound youth. I was the designated stuckee to call corporate and learn that it was up to the local franchisees to best determine their market needs and opportunities or some such eyewash. Today in Israel, in MacDonalds, it is a cause for termination for one employee to speak Arabic to another.
