A Dartmouth, Nova Scotia Subway restaurant has fired a woman because she gave two homeless neighbors something to eat after an apartment fire. Heidi Heise was entitled to the free food for herself, but failed to record it so she was fired for giving away free food.
It appears that managers sit and watch entire days of video to see if employees give free food. Heise was entitled to one free 12-inch sandwich a day — so she gave her homeless neighbors two 6-inch sandwiches. She simply forgot to mark it down and that was enough for Subway.
I hope the value of a 12-inch sandwich to Subway is worth the international press and condemnations. While this is probably an independent franchise owner, this would seem a case where Subway would be calling the franchise owner with literature on how to open up a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant.
