Wrongful Firing: Truck driver Tim McCrory fired for giving away plywood just before Irma hit

Give Tim McCrrory his job back! 
The cost of the plywood could be written off as a business loss easily.  There's not a legitimate reason to for that man to lose his job under an emergency situation.  None!     

NY Post reports a Florida truck driver who gave away his load of plywood to those in need just before Hurricane Irma struck Florida says he knew he would be fired for his actions — but was just “trying to be a good American,” according to a report.

Long-haul driver Tim McCrory was transporting 960 pieces of plywood to a Home Depot in Zephyrhills, Fla., a Tampa suburb, on Sept. 8 when he blew a tire on his truck, he told TV’s “Inside Edition.”
Seven hours passed before he finally got the tire fixed and by the time he arrived at Home Depot, it was past 9 p.m. The store was closed and boarded as a precaution as the storm rolled in, according to the report.

Home Depot’s manager, who was leaving, told McCrory to return Tuesday, he said.
McCrory said he called his company’s dispatcher, who directed him to bring the load to Atlanta. But before beginning the trip, he decided to nap for a few hours.

Around 2 a.m., a police officer banged on his truck window and asked what was going on, before urging him not to bring the load to Atlanta, according to the report.
He’d be better off giving the plywood to locals who could make good use of it before Irma hit, the officer explained.
