Bartender says she was unfairly fired and never received a paycheck

A TikToker calls a former employer about what she believes to be a wrongful termination when she was fired from her role as a bartender after a week on the job.

In a recent video that has been viewed more than 30,000 times, user @bluepastadog talks about being fired from her job and how she believes her race and age played a role in her employer’s decision. @bluepastadog didn’t reveal who she worked for, but she did mention it was a company in the video’s caption.

“I think they’re freaking racist because I was the only Asian in the whole restaurant… [and] Every time someone spoke to me, they talked to me like I was stupid or down on me,” said @bluepastadog. “I was immediately treated differently by the managers when they found out how old I am.”

@bluepastadog said in the video’s comments section that the job was in Texas. You have to be 18 or older to serve alcohol in Texas, and @bluepastadog said she was 19.

“So [age] and the race card has to be the only reason I got fired because I’ve never been fired from a job and honestly I’ve done a lot of jobs,” said @bluepastadog.

Race and age are among the main forms of discrimination in the workplace seen by the federal government’s Equal Opportunities Commission. In Texas, proving wrongful termination can be difficult because labor laws work at will, meaning employers can terminate an employee for any reason, or even no reason. However, according to the Texas Workforce Commission, there are some exceptions, such as: B. Federal and state anti-discrimination laws.

@bluepastadog also said she didn’t get a $200 paycheck from her previous job.

“So they claim they don’t have my paycheck,” she said. “They also claim it was mailed to me three weeks ago, but it only takes about two days to get something like this in the mail.”

She said she later called the facility to complain that she had not received her money.

“Now that I’ve been promoted to client, I can screw who the hell I want and it doesn’t matter,” she said.

Some commenters were quick to sympathize with @bluepastadog about the issues she faced, arguing she should legally target the establishment.

“You cannot be fired without LAWY cause,” said one commenter. “Race, age, etc. are discrimination and can be turned into a lawsuit! Get some money, sis.”

To which @bluepastadog replied, “I’ll think about it tbh.”
