Is it ok that I got fired from my job for accepting fake money on my first day of training to be cashier?

No one gave me training on what to
look for and they didn’t provide
anything to check the money to
make sure it was real.

Unfortunately this is legal. That is unless your termination violated the term of a union agreement or employment contract. The fact is that most work relationships are "at will" which means that an employer can discharge an employee for any reason or no reason at all. Bottom line, absent some form of legally actionable discrimination, an employer can set the condititons of work much as it sees fit.
