About to be fired from work for voicing my opinions
I work in retail at a well known uk retailer. I was on my non paid lunch break and was talking to several staff. The topic of immigration came up and some Asian staff members argued that they shouldn't have to learn English to live in England and English people should learn to speak "multi cultural" languages

I voiced my opinion to say that immigrants who come into the uk specially England should know or learn English .

Whilst I said this a white manager came in and had heard and pulled me over to one side and said I should leave early and they will review my enployment at their store

So I'm about to get fired I guess

By the Way I'm am excellent employee missed 1 day in 3 years and had a drs note for that .

That's terribly unfair if true.

Yes, everyone should have to learn every language to live in a country where English is the primary language. Insane.

Noooooo, take it to a labor tribunal for unfair dissmisal. Also you should have a verbal, then a written warning and a reason for dismissal if that was the case. You should also have paid leave if there is an investigation into your scenario.

Seek legal advice ASAP, and put brain into gear before mouth into action in future.

Seriously, no offense but religion and politics are not meant for the workplace. You caused strife among your co-workers, and I would find someone who was not so incendiery to replace you.

It's not like there are a shortage of workers looking for jobs, and as you are working with Asian immigrants, I assume you are in a minimum wage, low-skill position.

He was on his lunch break moron. Officially he was not working. If someone asks your opinion then they should be mature enough to listen to an opinion they do not agree with. If they can speak their opinions without fear of retribution then tell me why he cannot be afforded the same.

England is supposed to be a free country but obviously like the U.S. it is no longer true. People like you are accessories to the problem

I seriously thought you were trolling with your first post, but i gues the US is really in a slave like state then.

Firstly, he was having a discussion WHILE non paid lunch. Secondly, having discussions are healthy, communicating with your colleagues is good aswell. Yes religion and politics is good for the workplace aswell, like every discussion it can lead to a beter understanding, and these topics are very important.

Omg i really feel sad for you for you believing the things you say.

I assume you are one of those people trying desperately to keep people from talking about anything relevant?

Religion and politics are important issues that should be discussed at length by everyone so we can sort this shit out. Many people only go to work and then home. Way to try and keep people apart.

When people allowed this mentality to take over, they lost much of their chance to free themselves.

It would probably be a good idea to check the company policy for "on premise behavior" or something similar.

Since you weren't on the clock during that break, but you were on the company property.

If you are disciplined or your employment it terminated, (and the Asian folks who voiced their opinion are not treated the same as you) I would consider filing charges of discrimination against that employer.

No matter what, I would be looking for another employer. One that is less insane, if possible.

Good luck, OP.

Does your work have an EEO ? Equal Employment Opportunities dept.? Maybe they can advise you? That was not fair to you, I think they may just give you a warning, because you only gave them an opinion about learning the English language in your country.

It is my hope that America NEVER EVER becomes like that of the UK.

The UK is a BLOODY HELLHOLE of a place to live and it is getting worst by the second.

I am so glad to have left the UK. The UK is the most miserable hell on the planet. In the UK, you are cursed for being White. If you are a White citizen in the UK, you are automatically cursed for having an opinion. White equals second class sub-human citizens in the UK and your leaders SOLD YOU ALL OUT. Took your firearms away, took your Freedom and Rights away, took your OPINION away.

When will you BLOODY BABBIES in the UK stop taking it up the BUM? You lost everything. Glad to no longer liuve there. MISERBALE SH!THOLE.
