Well-meaning mom fired for selling Girl Scout Cookies at work3/20/2013
Tracy Lewis worked on the American University campus for 28 years as an employee of food service provider Bon Appetit. That all ended when Lewis was fired for selling her daughter's Girl Scout Cookies in the on-campus convenience store. Lewis, a single mother, says she never pressured any customers to buy the cookies — she simply stacked them on a cart in the store. "I can't profit for selling the cookies," she says. "I was just trying to help my daughter raise money for trips and stuff." Bon Appetit wouldn't comment, but her daughter's troop leader did. "A cookie mom is a selfless person," Alina McClerkin says. "I don't think anyone should be terminated for doing such a charitable thing." [Source]
