Que. man fired from Zellers for taking chocolate out of garbage for his kids
Guy Masse, 47, had planned to give the discarded chocolate to his children, ages six, nine and 15, for Christmas. Masse, who was on welfare and had been working at the store only for a couple of months, was first suspended and then fired.
“I think it’s inhuman,” Masse told CJAD radio station in Montreal of his dismissal. Zellers, which is part of Toronto-based retailer Hudson’s Bay Co., has said Masse should have notified his supervisor that he was taking the chocolate out of the garbage at the St-Hyacinthe store, about 50 kilometres east of Montreal.
I don’t get it. The chocolate was in the garbage.
