Troy has some old fashioned ethics.

    Not really, they shouldn't have hired him in the first place. Then when they were called on it they lied and said they weren't associated. Once it was proven they were, then and only then did they fire him. With as anti 2nd amendment as he and Chicago are he shouldn't have been considered.

    From what I understand they were not aware of his political views when they first were considering him. Then did the right thing when they found out.

    Ethics to me would be, "hey we messed up, and we'll do what it takes to fix it," when it's first brought to their attention. Not there response which was "That's not us......oh wait, that IS us and since you've pointed that out now we'll fix it." That is what my hookup is with Troy, it's the attempt to wiggle their way from the truth instead of manning up from the get go.

    Secondly, how could they not know about his politics. If I was sitting in Tory Industries HR and the application came across my desk, I'd first see the applicant was from Illinois, the most anti-second amendment state in the union. Then I would see he's from Chicago, a city who's in the running for the most anti-second amendment city in the country. I would assume people at Tory would have access to Google, and a quick search on this guys name would show he's campaigned against many of the products we sell.

    Then maybe they may have seen this quote from him in the Chicago Sun Times

    Yeah, that is going to win over my second amendment loving customers.

    To each their own, but Troy will never see a dime of my money.

    Yeah, could be, but for a company that derives probably 80% of its business from the military, the could have kept him without too much injury but they ended up doing the correct thing.
    I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Many companies dont even consider what peoples politics and more to qualifications of the actual job. They should have considering the industry they are in, but may have overlooked it.
    Who knows, but it ended well.

    This is true, but we'll have to agree to disagree on this one. :D
