Just before Hurricane Irma hit Leesburg, Florida, a nurse decided to bring her kids to a safe area and miss work. She worked at the Lake County Jail, a place that can’t just lock up and close during a hurricane.
The nurse is a single mom of two kids and has no family in Florida, so she took kids to Atlanta.
She told her boss she felt it was her only option and was never told she would lose her job if she left. But when she came back to work Monday, they fired her.
