By now, news of Ryan Young, the Safeway meat clerk who came to a pregnant woman’s aid when her boyfriend started kicking her, has spread across the country. Unfortunately, the the news of Ryan’s heroic deed also came with news that he was to be suspended without pay for the incident, due to Safeway’s zero-tolerance policy for violence.
However, upon hearing this news, swarms of people have come to Ryan’s defense, and it has paid off. UFCW Local 5, Ryan’s local union, began supporting Ryan by immediately challenging the suspension. It took several weeks, but Ryan has finally been reinstated at Safeway.
