A PAPA John’s franchise owner sacked a “starving” teenage worker when he asked for a free pizza because he couldn’t afford it.
Lawson Callaghan, 17, was stunned to be fired for “looking for handouts” after texting his boss for free food while on an overtime shift.
Leaked screenshots of the encounter show the owner then proceeded to brag about his wealth and call the teen a “loser” for not being able to afford food.
Even with the employee discount, the teen said he couldn’t stretch it after not yet receiving a payday on his £4.81 minimum wage.
Despite thinking he would be done with work at 9PM last Friday, Lawson found himself still at the Papa Johns an hour later, and asked for the free pizza as he was “starving”.
But the boss instead said he was “confused” by the hungry teen, and snapped back: “Had to pay for my own food from the kebab shop why should I pay for yours?”
He continued: “I was paid £3 an hour when I started at 16 and built my business.
