Women who said "We're burning the Jews" denied unemployment benefits

 

(JNS.org) An Iowa judge has denied unemployment benefits for two women fired from a manufacturing plant after workers said they saw them last December with a toy Easy Bake oven filled with gingerbread men, as they wished their colleagues a happy Hanukkah and said, “We’re burning the Jews.” Sisters Christina and Susan Ott were fired from the TriMark Corp. plant in New Hampton, Iowa. Carrying an oven around “with little people in it while saying, ‘Happy Hanukkah,’ is offensive, let alone if she said the hate speech along with it,” said Susan Ackerman, the administrative law judge who heard Christina Ott’s case.
