Lifeguard Fired for Saving Man Doesn´t Want His Job Back

 

Tomas Lopez, the young Florida lifeguard who was fired for saving a man outside his coverage zone, said he was offered his job back after public outrage.

The 21-year-old told his boss that he declines the offer. "Now that [the firing] is public, they want to fix it. That´s shady to me," Lopez says. Six of his colleagues quit in protest.

The company said by leaving his station, the young lifeguard opened the company up to liability, even though other lifeguards said they covered Lopez’s stretch of beach as he ran to save the man.

Corporations are ruining this country of ours. If the lifeguard jobs were run by they state, he would have got a commendation put in his file. This is what happens when your privatize government and state job, wait till the post office is privatized and you are paying 5 bucks to send a letter.

Implying anyone wants to actually send a letter. I mean, its only a matter of time before they charge that much considering how down their business is. Still need the postal service to send packages, but there´s always FedEx.
