A strawberry farm in Camarillo, CA allegedly fired workers who fled the field after being innundated with smoke from a nearby wildfire. Workers were said to have left their jobs picking the berries because of the smoke, but when they returned the next day were reportedly told they were fired for walking off the job.
After the story made headlines, the farm said it was a big misunderstanding and said the workers were welcomed back, but most had already found employment elsewhere.
Glad these guys didn't own a office high rise. "We don't care if the building's on fire, get back to your desk.!!"
Get the "he said she said" here.
