School Custodian Fired for Having Pro-Walker Sign in Car


Mary Taylor is a school custodian in Wisconsin who was fired for having a sign in her car that says “Stand with Walker,” in reference to the recall efforts against Governor Scott Walker. Taylor said that a number of cars in the school parking lot bore anti-Walker stickers, and teachers started complaining about her sign, causing the janitorial service that employed her to fire her. The school district claims they had nothing to do with it, but her attorney said that the complaints started from the district and he believes they had something to do with it.

She said her manager offered her unemployment or a different job thirty miles from her home. Maggie’s Notebook also reported that Taylor’s car was keyed. So much for free speech.

Here she is on Fox News telling her story.
