Government contractor fires female employee over being seen on social media giving Trump motorcade the finger from her motorbike
A female associate of Virginia contractor Akima LLC was fired from her job for violating the company’s personal social media policy after a picture of her giving Trump’s motorcade the finger went viral on social media even though her face was not identifiable in the picture. She did admit to HR to being the person. She had been riding a motorcycle when she encountered the motorcade by happenstance.
The woman, Juli Briskman, held a “marketing” position at the contractor. Perhaps it’s more understandable that could be viewed as bad for business. There is no double life anymore.
A typical story appears on the site AVClub, here.
