Cook fired after incident with McCrory gets job offers

READ MORE:

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- The cook who was fired from his job at a Charlotte food store and restaurant after a confrontation with Gov. Pat McCrory this week says he's received several job offers.

The Charlotte Observer reported that Drew Swope said he's also gotten an offer of help from Mayor Patrick Cannon.

Swope was fired from Reid's Fine Foods on Sunday after he had a dispute with McCrory, who was in the store. Swope said he asked McCrory if he could help him and then said "thanks for nothing" when he realized he was speaking with the governor, with whom he disagrees politically.

Swope says he doesn't blame the store for firing him, because customers deserve good service.

Mayor Cannon said he is only trying to help a constituent find a job.
