Whole Foods protest held after worker Rhiannon Broschat fired
Some Whole Food workers in Chicago protested the firing of an employee who stayed home during the bitter cold of January 28.
Supporters gathered outside the company's regional headquarters on Wednesday.
Rhiannon Broschat says she needed to stay home with her special needs child that day because Chicago Public Schools cancelled classes.
Whole Foods says it will not discuss current or former employees, but says it has clear policies on absences and no single event would lead to a firing.
