|Wes emphasized that employees routinely wear band shirts at Rocketown. So why did this shirt cause such a problem?|
There is a big difference between wearing a band shirt and wearing a shirt that, at least in this day and age, amounts to making a political statement.
I mean, its all very likely that there is a double standard here, but I'd rather wait and see all the facts before jumping to any conclusions. If there wasn't any sort of dress code and other people routinely wore political shirts then of course this is a problem. If there were clear guidelines on what to wear / not wear then the guy is just an idiot who was looking for trouble.
