A Popeyes manager in Channelview, Texas has buckled under the pressure of social media after the story of Marisa Holcomb has caught nationwide attention.
The pregnant manager of the local chicken spot was robbed at gunpoint and when she refused to pay back the money stolen, her bum ass boss let her go–as if the post tramatic stress wasn’t bad enough.
Now he’s trying to give her old job back.
Marissa Holcomb, who is a mother of three with a fourth child on the way, had a meeting with Z & H Foods owner Amin Dhanani on Wednesday, a day after our original story aired of her firing.
“He just apologized and pretty much offered me if I wanted to go back to his business and work there again,” she said.
Holcomb says she was originally terminated because she refused to pay back money that was stolen during a robbery March 31. Dhanani argued she was fired because she broke policy multiple times by leaving too much money in the register.
Holcomb argued it was a busy Tuesday when they offer a 2-piece chicken meal for $1.19 and she moved money as fast as she could.
The unidentified robber got away with nearly $400.
They’re also offering Holcomb $2000 in back pay. While she could obviously use the money, should she weigh whatever options come her way?
