Woman fired for being homeless

Emily Le Coz writes for The Clarion Ledger: “A Tupelo woman hired earlier this month by a KFC was fired Monday after the franchise owner discovered she’s homeless. Eunice Jasica has been staying at the Salvation Army lodge since early December after losing her job, her car and her home. The nonprofit organization requires its residents to seek employment daily and, upon finding it, to pay for lodging and start saving for a place of their own. Jasica said she had been job hunting for months and was relieved to find work on March 11 at the KFC on North Gloster Street.”
