Fired Manager Gets New Job
CHANNELVIEW, Texas (AP) — A pregnant manager at a Houston-area fast-food restaurant who says she was fired after a robbery has a new job.
KHOU-TV (http://bit.ly/1JCNyPb ) reports Marissa Holcomb starts her new position Thursday at a different Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen.
Holcomb says she was fired after a March 31 robbery at a Popeyes in Channelview for not paying back $400 stolen by a gunman.
The franchise owner says Holcomb, who was a shift manager, broke policy by leaving too much cash in the register.
Holcomb, who's married with three children, received an apology last week from the franchise owner. Holcomb says she was offered $2,000 in back pay and her old job back.
Her attorney says she's opted to work at another location.
Messages left with Atlanta-based Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen weren't immediately returned Thursday.
