A McDonald’s worker picked up the bill when some first responders came in after fighting a fire in freezing temperatures. But when she came into work the next day she was fired.
Heather Levia, 23, from Olean, New York, has worked at McDonald’s for eight years, has twins at home and is putting herself through nursing school.
She says she knows what it is like to work hard. So when the firefighters came in and ordered 25 breakfast sandwiches and hash browns, Levia paid the $92 bill herself.
When a second department ordered $70 of food, Levia texted her boss to see if the company would pay the tab. But when her boss said no, Levia and other workers again picked up the bill.
“Just because I appreciate everything they do,” she told WIVB.
