Waukesha, WI – On Friday, Luis Torres released a three-day suspension notice that he and other employees received from their supervisor at Filtration Systems, Inc. in Waukesha after attending Thursday’s rally against several anti-immigrant bills passed by the majority of White racist Republican legislators in Madison. Torres was one among 60,000 Latino taxpayers who went to Madison during the Day without Latinos and Immigrants rally sponsored by Voces de la Frontera (VDLF).
Torres posted his dismay on Compras y Ventas en Wisconsin on Facebook. He contacted VDLF for assistance in his case.
Torres posted that the supervisor was notified by the employees a day before that they would be attending the rally in Madison and that the supervisor for some reason has lied and gave them a three-day suspension without pay as a first wsrning for not showing up for work and holding up production. Torres claims the supervisor is doing an injustice. He has worked at Filtration systems for 10 years.
