Walgreens sued for firing diabetic clerk who snacked on job

So you think that your loyalty to your corporate employer will be rewarded? Apparently an employee’s health condition is always to take second place to the company’s policy & procedures.

Of course, earlier this year Walgreens fired a Pharmacist for fending off a armed robber

But don’t look at the above link…because it has DISAPPEARED from the Chicago Tribune’s online search.. Imagine that !!!
But apparently ABC has much more ethics

Of course Walgreens defended their action with the following…

“We’ve made significant investments in security technology in recent years, including increasing the number of digital surveillance cameras at our stores,” the company said. “We continue to invest in state-of-the-art security measures and high-definition surveillance equipment and hope that the apprehension of robbery suspects in the Benton Harbor area will prevent future crimes.”

I am sure that the families/relatives of any employees/customers that are harmed/killed during a Walgreens robbery will find tremendous comfort when someone is apprehended.
