Burger King Ordered to Rehire Fight-for-$15 Organizer

Terrance Wise, who had worked at a Burger King for more than 11 years, was not kept on the job when the store was acquired by EYM King in 2015. General manager LaReda Hayes told the board that Wise was not rehired because of his limited availability and record of insubordination and lateness. However, the National Labor Relations Board’s administrative law judge found the reasons implausible and ruled that the franchisee had declined to hire Wise “for having engaged in protected labor activity” and ordered the Kansas City franchisee to rehire him. Wise had been responsible for bringing the “Fight for $15” campaign to the store where he was employed.
