NH father fired for attending son's birth begins new job after seven months of hunting
CONCORD — The New Hampshire father who had been fired from his job for choosing to attend his son's birth began working at a new job seven months later.
According to the Concord Monitor, Lamar Austin, a 31-year-old father, lost his part-time security job in Manchester after choosing to be with his wife, Lindsay, when she entered labor to have their son Cainan.
After receiving an outpouring of support from the public, Lamar has finally returned to the workforce.
Seven months after being fired, Lamar is currently working as an electrician's apprentice at Blay Electric in Concord.
Down the road, Austin hopes to finish the five-year apprenticeship and eventually become a journeyman and continue being an electrician.
