I was recently fired from my job of 4years. I
was a Cafeteria manager and I sent my
supervisor to the store to buy bacon. He came
back with an enormous amount of bacon, and I
was fired the next day. They said that
technically he is not a manager so he should
not have been trusted with the company credit
card. This was never mentioned to me before.
Can this be considered wrongful firing?

Unless you had protection under the terms of an employment contract or union agreement, you were an "at will" worker. This means that you coulld have been terminated for any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice. The fact is that a company can set the conditions of employment much as it sees fit (absent some form of legally actionable discrimination).
