Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

A Walmart worker found an envelope with $20,000 left in the shopping cart of a customer he was helping and the worker ran after the customer to return the money to her, the Seattle Times reports.

Bismark Mensah, a Ghanian immigrant who makes about $9 per hour at a Seattle-area Walmart, told the Seattle Times he didn’t even think about keeping the money.

“I couldn’t even drive home if I did that.”

Mensah has been awarded Walmart’s “Integrity In Action” award and promoted to a full-time employee with benefits.
