    Maybe he was slapping around customers or spitting in food before he saw the attack. *shrugs*

    sounds like just bad timing, IE the waiter was going to be fired anyway, the manager just decided to do it after he saved the girl.

    Unless the manager can provide some better reason for firing him than just "he wasn't that good of an employee" I think that restaurant might have a wrongful termination lawsuit on it's hands.

    Then again, I'm sure he could get another waiter job if he wanted one and the restaurant he goes to could benefit from hiring him by exploiting his good deed.

    What a way to commend someone. "Great job on potentially saving someones life. Here's your pink slip!"

    Except that Florida, like almost every US state, is an "At-Will" employment state, meaning that in the absence of a contract, an employer can fire you for any reason they see fit (within the law).

    Oh, I LOVE the "humans don't deserve to live" idiots.

    The article never said he was fired BECAUSE of what he did. For all we know the boss was right - he may have been a terrible waiter.

    But yes, let's proclaim the failure of the entire human race because one waiter got shitcanned by his boss.

    Go to cop school if you want to be a hero. You get a gun, and you can arrest McDonald's employees who oversalt your burgers.

    It's probaby an issue of liability. Like it or not in today's society any emplyee that tackles a person (Yeah, unfortunately, even a car-jacker) opens the business up to a fat liability suit if the car-jacker gets injured. That's why even companies like Target & WalMart don't even let their security chase a thief any more. A person "on the clock" is considered to be "representing the company with any actions they take" It sucks, but with the suit happy public I'm not surprised he got fired...

    I rarely, if ever, take the internet seriously - but in my time here, I've seen so many people try the "humans don't deserve to live" spiel so many times that I can't help but be amused.
