Whole Foods fired a man for taking a tuna sandwich destined for the trash

The Union Square Whole Foods in New York fired a man for taking a tuna sandwich destined for the trash, which meant he was ineligible for unemployment benefits due to being fired for misconduct.

the NYTimes mentions more here:

What do you think of that?

I personally think that was a bad move on the part of Whole Foods and don't plan to shop there anymore.

What do you think? How significantly do you allow a store or restaurant's policies and/or actions (vs. quality /prices of goods offered) affect your purchasing decisions?
