What Walmart did to my son

Tell Walmart to rehire my son, Kyle Jagal, who was fired just because he approved a price match on a turkey for an elderly customer.

 


My son Kyle is a single dad who works incredibly hard to support his two children, who are 6 and 2. He doesn't have a car, so he walks two miles every day to his job at Walmart so he can take care of his kids. 
But last week, two days before Thanksgiving, Walmart fired Kyle -- just for approving a price match on a turkey for an elderly customer. 
Here's what happened: a customer came in and showed the cashier a lower price for a turkey from a competing retailer. As the customer service manager, my son authorized the cashier to match the competitor's price. Three days later, Kyle's manager told him he was fired because the turkey didn't appear on the customer's receipt at all, which is ridiculous, because it's the cashier's job to ring up customers, not Kyle's!
My son should not have been fired, and I'm not going to stand by while Walmart robs him of his ability to support his kids. Please click here to sign my Change.org petition demanding that Walmart give Kyle his job back.
Kyle lives in rural Kentucky, and he doesn't have a lot of job options. He worked his way up to be a customer service manager at his local Walmart because he really needs that job to support his family. Kyle did not deserve to be fired, and his kids sure didn't deserve to have their dad lose his job right at the start of the holidays. 
Walmart has been publicly advertising its price match policy all through the holiday season, so I don't understand why my son would get fired just for upholding the store's own policy!
I know that Walmart has responded to Change.org petitions before. In fact, just two months ago, a disabled Walmart greeter got his job back after 1600 people signed a petition supporting him. I know that if thousands of people sign my petition, Walmart will do the right thing and give my son his job back, too.
Please sign my petition to get my son Kyle's job back.
Thank you,
