Christian dishwasher fired by hotel because she refused to work Sundays awarded $21M

A devout Christian dishwasher and mother of six who was fired by the Conrad Hotel in Miami, Florida, for refusing to work on Sundays was awarded $21 million in punitive damages by a federal jury Monday after she sued for the violation of her religious rights.“I love God. No, I can’t [work on] Sunday because Sunday, I honor God,” Haitian immigrant Marie Jean Pierre, 60, said in an interview with NBC 6 South Florida on Wednesday.
