A Michigan Walmart employee who was fired last week for intervening with a man assaulting his ex-girlfriend says he is rejecting Walmart's offer to come back to work.
Kristopher Oswald says he believes if he takes his old job back his bosses will simply look for another reason to fire him. "I wholeheartedly believe I'm being set up for the fall," he told the Associated Press. "I believe the only reason I was offered my job back in the first place was that I was on TV. They got three days of bad publicity, people going in and protesting, saying they wouldn't shop there anymore."
Oswald, who was attacked after trying to help the woman, says he's been offered other jobs but has yet to take any of them. He says he's focused instead on therapy to help him get over the anxiety stemming from the beating.
