Three bricklayers baffled as they're fired for dedicating Shakira song to their boss


Three bricklayers have lost their jobs after dedicating Shakira’s latest song, ‘El Jefe,’ to their boss.

In the song, the Colombian singer criticizes her ex-father-in-law and mentions Lili Melgar, the couple’s nanny, who was fired by her ex-husband Gerard Piqué.

Lili was reportedly fired without compensation after telling Shakira of her husband’s alleged infidelities.

This song, known for its strong social critique, resonated with the workers, who found its message about wage inequality relatable.

Inspired by Shakira’s lyrics, these workers turned to TikTok as a platform to catch their boss’s attention and request a raise.

They created a choreographed dance set to the song’s rhythm, with verses like: “I have a lousy boss who doesn’t pay me well, I walk to work while he arrives in a Mercedes-Benz, he treats me like a recruit, that son of a *****.”

Predictably, their video quickly went viral and reached their employer’s ears.

However, the outcome wasn’t what they hoped for.

Instead of receiving the desired salary increase, they were informed that they had been fired.

In a follow-up video, their expressions revealed their shock and disappointment at their boss’ decision.

They explained that they never expected their playful prank would lead to such harsh consequences.

In the video, they said: “Our video went viral, and our employers found out. Now we’re in search of new employment.”

Despite the difficult situation, they thanked all the followers who shared their video.

They said: “We did not know that this was going to end like this, but we ask that you share this video since we are hard-working people looking for work and we want to move forward.”

A new report by Oxfam finds that among 38 rich nations in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the US is last among measures of wages, worker protections, and labor rights.

The US ranks 36 out of 38 in wage policies, with Mexico at the bottom.
