A mother and daughter who were fired from their jobs at an affordable children’s fashion store are now fighting for their livelihoods.
Meryl Fendett and her 12-year-old daughter, Mia, said they had to go back to the job of caring for the kids at the Fendet Family Clothing store in Winter Park, Fla.
They are still trying to figure out what went wrong.
Fendett said they were fired for the first time in their careers last month after the store closed, and she said they thought they were done for.
But the last few weeks have been a struggle, she said.
Mia and her mother were the first employees fired for refusing to put her in a different part of the store.
Fendingett said she told them she would not work with the store’s new owners, who are from California, to keep her and the other employees.
Fenditt said the new owners took a different stance than the one they had with her, and Fendetts daughter has since lost her job.
Michele Fendetta, Mia’s mother, said she is not happy with the way things are going.
She said Fendets daughter has been struggling for her job ever since.
She told the Associated Press on Tuesday that she was trying to find another job, but was turned down because the store is closed.
Fends family members have a different perspective.
They say they were forced to move from Florida to Florida to find a new place to live, and they say the family is trying to work with Fendts store to find new jobs.
Fendeett and Mia say they are both in the process of seeking employment again, but for now, they want to work together with Fenderts new owners.
They have tried to work out a deal to keep Mia and her mom in the store and also to get her and her parents another job.
