Pope Warns Employers Not to Fire Employees; Ending Jobs for More Money "Very Grave Sin"

Pope Francis said today (March 15, 2017) that employers who fire workers for economic reasons are committing a "very grave sin" and should ensure dignified work for all their employees, according to the Washington Post website.

Francis made the comments at his general audience today after appealing for a resolution to a labor dispute at Sky Italia, where employees are facing job cuts and relocation as the satellite channel moves offices from Rome to Milan -- about a 295-mile distance between the two cities.

Francis called for a solution that respects the rights of all, "especially families."

He added: "Those who for economic reasons or to conclude unclear negotiations, close factories and business ventures and take away jobs, this person is committing a very grave sin."
