Bartender’s job on the rocks

Society continues to suffer from questionable company policies that encourage precisely the wrong behaviors.

Bartender Twyla DeVito said she knew that one of her regulars at the American Legion Post in Shelby, Ohio, was too inebriated to drive home and thus telephoned police, alerting them to a potential drunken driver. An officer responded, observed the driver and arrested him when his blood-alcohol read twice the limit for presumed impairment.

Two days later, DeVito was fired because, as her boss allegedly said to her, “[I]t’s bad for business to have a bartender that will call the cops.”
