Man Fired By Drunken Lemurs
Well, the bad news is, a Fort Madison Iowa casino worker got fired for posting a Dilbert comic strip (above) on a company bulletin board.
David Steward told the local unemployment compensation judge that he felt the strip would help cheer people up after the casino dismissed 170 employees on its way to going out of business. No great long-term loss to Steward, as his job was going blooie as well. The casino’s human resources director said management was highly offended by Steward’s action. Evidently, they only had a short time to take umbrage.
The good news is, the unemployment compensation judge sided with Steward. It was a "good-faith error in judgment," the judge said. He’ll get his unemployment comp, along with the other employees who lost their jobs.
