Eunice Jasica has been trying to get her life back together after losing her home, her car and her employment. She had been staying at the local Salvation Army while actively seeking a new job — and she found one. KFC, one of the biggest franchised restaurants in the world, gave her a position. Great news? Yes, but no. She was fired for not having a permanent address.
From Clarion Ledger:
A document signed by that location’s general manager on March 12 confirms Jasica had been hired to perform “prep work” and would receive a paycheck every two weeks.
But when Jasica reported for duty Monday, franchise owner Chesley Ruff withdrew the job offer upon learning she lived at the Salvation Army.
“He told me to come back when I had an address and transportation,” Jasica recalled. “But how am I supposed to get all that without a job?”
Ruff signed a letter the same day stating he couldn’t employ her “due to concerns of lack of residence and transportation” and that she could reapply when her circumstances change.
