A_Titanic_Mess Posted July 5, 2008 Share Posted July 5, 2008 I'm sorry Boddah, but regardless of whether King Island can or has the right to fire these employees, it simply would not be the right thing to do. The WCPO story, whether fully accurate or not, portrays KI in a not so positive light. If the park were now to terminate these employees for speaking out about the housing situation, it would only make matters worse for KI. The employees stated in the story that attempts were made to speak to the HR person coordinating the housing program, and were unsuccessful. Clearly they felt KI was being unresponsive to the situation. If the facts of the story are so inaccurate, the park spokesperson should have refuted the claims. Instead he looked uncomfortable while making excuses for the situation. As far as the i-team "choosing" to focus on the apartment building under construction, well if any of the exchange workers were being housed in that building, then it certainly was relevant to show that. Interesting how it took the i-team story to get any action from the park, sending the HR person over to check on the exchange workers only after the the i-team was contacted. Had the park taken the time to do this earlier in the season, there would porbably never have been an i-team report to begin with. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
