Walmart worker claims he was fired for turning in found cash too slowly

(FoxNews.com) - A Walmart maintenance worker on the job for nearly two decades says he was fired for moving too slowly to turn in $350 he found in the parking lot.

Michael Walsh, 45, says he was called into the manager's office of the Walmart Neighborhood Market in Niskayuna, N.Y., on November 6 and promptly fired for "gross misconduct," The Times Union reports.

Walsh was picking up garbage in the store parking lot when he found a $5 bill. He says he immediately went inside and turned the cash over to his manager.

When he went back outside to resume his duties, Walsh says he found a small stack of $20 and $10 bills. The bills were loose without an envelope or identification as to who owned the cash.
