IL Man Fired Over Green Bay Packers Tie May Have Found Work

by

OAK LAWN, Ill. (WTAQ) - A suburban Chicago car salesman who got fired for wearing a Green Bay Packers’ tie to work has found a new job at another dealership.

John Stone tells WGN Radio in Chicago he was offered a sales position at Chevrolet of Homewood, pending a job interview.

The 34-year-old Stone wore a green and gold tie to work Monday, after the Packers made the Super Bowl by beating the Chicago Bears in the NFC Championship Game.

Stone said his mother recently died, so he wore the tie in her memory as well as to celebrate the Packer victory.

But his boss, Jerry Roberts, said his dealership has done promotions with the Bears – and he didn’t want to risk losing customers who are Bears’ fans.

Roberts said he gave Stone 5 chances to take off the Packer tie, but he refused each time.
