This is by no means a crime in our eyes. This person admits they used to steal steaks from their job because their employer didn’t believe in paying a livable wage. So, in retaliation, they used to steal some food after their shift. Hey, sustenance is necessary for survival. And if the job is impeding us from doing that, then take what’s rightfully yours.
Everyone should be paid a livable wage. If this person works in a restaurant, they should have access to the work menu for free for their lunch break. Unfortunately, not all companies feel that way. Not all corporations or establishments of any kind see employees as equals. Everyone should be treated with respect.
