Imagine being robbed at gunpoint at your job, a fear many workers face daily.
Workers in this situation are told to let the perpetrator take the money.
This is because, besides the chance of losing one’s life, Liberal policies have actually given more rights to the criminals than the person defending life or property.
So when Popeyes worker Marissa Holcomb was robbed, she followed what has become policy for people in her position, and simply allowed the robber to take $400 from the register.
Popeyes asked the pregnant mother of three to pay for the theft.
“I told them I’m not paying nothing. I just had a gun to me. I’m not paying the money.”
Soon after the robbery, Holcomb tells Houston television station KHOU-11 that her bosses ordered her to repay the money the thieves took—or else. Some fast-food operators have rules about how much money can be left in the till; if workers don’t bank it into the safe fast enough, they become liable.
“I told them I’m not paying nothing,” Holcomb told the station. “I just had a gun to me. I’m not paying the money.”
In return, Holcomb says, she was fired. The pregnant mom of three was seeking work at other fast-food vendors and speaking out on Wednesday about a policy she says is unfair.
Then, on Thursday, local operators and Popeyes corporate offices issued statements of regret to Consumerist, issuing apologies to employees and offering to reinstate Holcomb.
Holcomb is also being offered $2,000 in back pay—but she told KHOU she’s not sure she wants to go back to work for the chicken chain.
