Oshawa Marshalls outlet fired him for being gay, this man says.
When Michael Gale landed a job at an Oshawa Marshalls store he was excited; it felt like a promising experience where he could move up, and most of all, be himself. But when he reported instances of discrimination, he says management started looking for reasons to let him go. "If you go to Gay Pride, you see Marshalls, HomeSense and Winners plastered all over the pride flags, so I felt it was going to be an accepting place," said Gale.
