Boycott KFC--- We don't need them in New Zealand.

If a conservative newspaper like the New Zealand Herald publishes a report about KFC 'dumping' disabled workers under the guise that all workers be able to preform at the same level, then I say---'get out of New Zealand, KFC!' We do not need your 19th Century work relations policies and the fact that you tried to cover up your actions makes your actions even worse.
I hope that as many of you reading this as possible, go to the New Zealand Herald site, read the article and spread the word, not just in New Zealand, but around the world. Let this 'throwback in time' business feel the wrath of thinking people.
This action by KFC is totally against what the people of NZ think. It is against everything we have fought for over the years and if KFC get way with their unscrupulous act, then it will be emulated by similar companies. Make a stand now. For every job lost as a result, others will be created as perhaps a local (in this case, a NZ business) business will fill the gap left by KFC. We have it in our power to make a difference. Vote with your feet and support those workers, who need dignity, not a further reminder that their lives are difficult. Let us hear more voices raised in anger at this cynical, 'nothing but money matters,' move on the part of KFC. Kentucky Fried Chicken-- you have stooped low!
One good result of your action could be the removal of one 'unhealthy company.' Perhaps those that replace you will take a more responsible pathway, not just re peoples'  employment rights, but also  strive to care about the health of New Zealanders.
Pass the message on, everybody! DON'T SUPPORT KFC!  Now, go and read the article in the New Zealand Herald--the Sunday, 22/09/2013 online version. Don't just take my word!
