A Burger King employee was fired for putting up this sign at a restaurant in Washington.

There have been many questions about the sign but the debates that have been sparked by the content of the sign is the question, are Americans losing out on jobs to immigrants?

Some say yes, while others say that the jobs being taken by immigrants are jobs that Americans don't want.

Burger King has released a statement through its Facebook page in which it made clear the worker, who has not been named, was not acting on behalf of the parent company:

"The sign in question was posted briefly last summer, without approval at a franchise-owned and operated restaurant. Please know the franchisee has informed us that the employee who posted and photographed this sign was immediately terminated as a result. The Burger King team is dedicated to diversity and inclusion."
