Union Worker Fired For Wearing Bush Hat and Shirt

A union worker wearing a hat and sweatshirt with "George H.W. Bush" on it was fired for refusing to take the items off. The George H. W. Bush happens to be the name of the aircraft carrier that his son is currently serving on in the Navy!
The IATSE (Local 33) union fired the worker even after he explained the shirt to his bosses. The shirt didn’t explicitly support George H.W Bush but that of the aircraft carrier named after the former President and the aircraft carrier his son has served on for the past many years and is currently deployed. The union worker was interviewed on KTLA Channel 5 locally in Los Angeles.
The stage hand was identified as Duane Hammet and a distraught Hammet can be seen during his interview very distraught as his support for his son and his service becoming the center piece to his firing.
