Voice of the People: March 19, 2014

WTNH– Yesterday we told you about a story where a 7-1-1 employee gave a free cup of coffee to a homeless man. Now that employee is on the brink of getting fired because of it. Phone calls from you flooded in our inbox today, sounding off about the issue. Here’s tonight’s voice of the people.

“The girl who gave the guy the coffee for free, she gave him that coffee out of her heart Her manager? He’s a jerk, he ain’t got no heart, he don’t deserve to have a person of her quality working for him,” said Leonard, New Haven.

“The company at large who is trying to prosecute that poor young lady for giving a homeless guy a cup of coffee, it’s a disgrace,” said Joe, New Haven.

“Poor girl deserves a medal taking care of the homeless people,” said Frank, Milford.

“Have the owner wake up and smell the coffee, pun intended, buy the guy a cup of coffee, 89 cents. I don’t think 7-11 is going to go bankrupt over 89 cents,” said J.Q. East Lime.

“I used to work at a food bag and I definitely gave out some free coffee, it’s cold out, give em some free coffee what kind of people do that. He’s homeless, that guy has no heart,” said Sean, Danbury.
