Fired for standing up for me and my co-workers

49105968_1593110295619854_r.jpegi was fired for defending me and my co-workers while working at Kroger from the store manager. i worked in the kitchen which is the hardest and busiest place to work in the whole store and asked to switch to a different department because the work was difficult, stressful, and did not pay enough for what it was worth but was denied several times because "i was good at it". one day during lunch rush a large group of customers kept us very busy and we were not able to answer the ringing phone. the person calling was the store manager who was wondering if a certain employee had already gone home we were unable to answer for about 10 minutes before the store manager, who we'll call Steve, came in pissed off and insinuating that me and my co-workers weren't doing our jobs properly. i told him that it was lunch rush and that we were too busy to answer the phone and that me and my co-workers were working very hard while he kept berating us.eventually i was fired for saying that we had been working our hardest despite the worn down equipment, low pay, high-stress, risky Jerry-rigged equipment, and exhaustive rules and requlations. of course i was fired but i felt that what i had done was right. now im waiting to be shipped off to military boot camp in the airforce but my ship date has been delayed several times, this has led to financial complications and i am now asking for your help. anything is greatly appreciated.
