Popeyes Worker Fired For Bringing In Son To Help With Chicken Sandwich Demand

Bring Your Child To Work Day took on a new meaning as one Popeyes employee enlisted his young son to help dish out the chain’s popular new chicken sandwiches.

A customer at a location in The Colony, Texas captured video footage of the boy, believed to be about 8-years-old, mixing the flour for the batter while donning an apron and sneakers.

The company wasn’t too happy, especially since it’s against federal and state labor laws to put a minor to work, and had the employee fired.

The person who shot the video told Inside Edition the restaurant was packed with customers.

When do you think the craze over these sandwiches will die down?
