TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) --Eunice Jasica lives at the Salvation Army. She has been homeless since December 7, 2012.
She has to look for a job daily in order to stay at the shelter.
Jasica says she finally found a job after three months of searching.
"Monday after school, I had to come into work so my manager could start training me. But, I had to first go get the uniform and it was pouring down [raining] that day," said Jasica.
Jasica said she arrived to pick-up her uniform with paperwork in hand, but the owner of the business turned her away.
"When he found out about the address 527 he turned it around and I was just devestated," said Jasica.
She said she was told that she would not be hired because she doesn't have a permanent address and does not have transportation.
"I know they [The Salvation Army] wouldn't believe 'how did you get hired one minute and now you are telling us you don't have a job' so I had to have proof. I asked him to please write it down," Jasica said.
Major Sue Dorman with the Salvation Army says she was not to happy to read the letter. She said she called the owner of the business and he stood by the letter.
"We have funding to help them get on their feet, but they have to get that job to show that they can maintain when we pull out. If this happens what do they have to look forward to," Dorman said.
We did not release the name of the employer because no law was broken. Mississippi is an "at-will-employment" state. Which means an employer can release an employee for good cause, bad cause, or for no cause at all.
As for Jasica she is still looking for a job. She attends ICC and is working towards her business degree.
