Francis: firings can be “grave sin”

Managers who close businesses, shut factories or restructure firms without fully considering the impact on workers and their families are committing a “very grave sin,” Pope Francis said. Addressing tens of thousands of people in St. Peter’s Square on Wednesday, Francis strayed from his text after mentioning he was worried about how families might be affected by a labor dispute at TV network Sky Italia.
