Kevin Ford worked for decades at a Las Vegas airport Burger King without ever taking an unplanned sick day. He often worked late into the night. In those years he surely worked through sickness—the kind of sickness where it’s equally true that you should be resting at home and that you should not be cooking food for other people. He worked through pain. When he needed back surgery because of the long hours he worked while standing on hard floors, he used vacation days. And after more than two decades, his employer recognized Ford’s reliability and dedication … with a bag containing a movie ticket, some candy, and a cup.
Ford posted a TikTok video of himself opening his gift, intending to celebrate the recognition he’d gotten. But when many viewers pointed out how outrageously stingy it was on the part of his employer, his daughter posted a GoFundMe, which over the course of a year took in $400,000.
