McDonald's worker says she was fired for helping firefighters
OLEAN (Newsource) -- A former McDonalds worker in New York says her bosses fired her -- for showing gratitude to firefighters.
Lou Raguse got her side of the story.
Tom Meyers, the owner of the Olean McDonalds, gave this statement:
"We are aware that certain allegations have been made concerning the reasons for Heather Levia's termination. Out of respect for Ms. Levia and her privacy, it would not be appropriate to comment in detail on the reasons she is no longer employed by our organization. Still, it should be pointed out that the allegations are absolutely not true. We would never penalize an employee for showing appropriate gratitude for the work of our firefighters."
