If you’re looking for a quitting video, look for further than Joey DeFrancesco. Joey wasn’t happy. He was a hotel worker at the Renaissance Providence in Pasadena CA, and like many workers around the world, thought that his job conditions were less than satisfactory. He wasn’t too fond of his boss either. “I hated them and they hated me”, he said. What most people do in his situation is grumble and whine, and then grudgingly put in their papers. Not Joey. Here’s how he quit – with quite a bang.
The efforts of his 19 piece brass band weren’t all for nothing. The quitting video went viral, and he ended up creating a hugely popular website that raises the issues of worker rights the world over.
