‘Gangnam’ Lifeguards Rehired

The residents of El Monte, Calif., can swim safely once again. Fourteen lifeguards fired from a Southern California pool for making a parody video of Psy’s "Gangnam Style" in city-issued swimsuits will get their jobs back, reports the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. After news of their termination in September, the lifeguards’ Facebook page garnered local and global support. In early October, 300 resolute citizens packed into a council meeting demanding the decision to fire them be revoked. Set in motion by Mayor Andre Quintero, the recommendation to rehire all 14 was approved in a 3-2 vote by the city council.
