Not likely. They probably work in one of those "Right to work" states. That's a euphemism "We can fire you for whatever reason we want".
If you work in a state where there's some employment protection, you could use the argument that your sales were not actually down. It was 0, in the previous year, and 0 now. This is actually, a 1000% improvement. See if you can get employee of the year

With the son only getting the job through nepotism, and being fire happy on people vital to the business for stupid, unrelated reasons - it seems like the business isn't going to be around for much longer... It's probable he would have lost his job one way or the other eventually.

I'll never understand how this is normal for some of you guys. You seriously have a lot to learn from Europe and other continents.

Personally, I wouldn't even want to work for that asshole. All you can do now is hope his company flushes down the toilet and find a better job! :)

I'm sure you can at least get some unemployment while you're finding another job. You're probably better off somewhere else anyway. Sounds like he's an idiot. It may seem like it sucks right now, but hopefully you'll look back later on and see it as a blessing in disguise. Just keep your head up.

#39, it all depends on the reason why OP was fired. In this case OP should consult with an attorney to make sure that the unemployment claim will be accepted.
