    Sub Shop Employees “Fight For 15″ Strike Their Employer, Shop Forced To Close, Throwing Them Out Of Work
    http://weaselzippers.us/?p=165419

    So let me get this straight, Worker’s Organizing Committee of Chicago convinces the employees of Snarf’s Sub Shop to go on strike for higher wages, closing the business, and the business, which already wasn’t doing well, is now forced to close...

    Via Daily Mail:

    • Staff at Snarf's Sub Shop in River North received the bad news on Sunday night in a group email
    • They were notified the drastic action was effective immediately
    • The company blamed 'increased competition and losses' for the firings
    • Director of operations Doug Besant said in the email the restaurant will likely close for a month as they reconcept the business into a burger joint
    • It comes less than a month after Snarf's workers rallied for higher wages

    ...Furious members of the Worker's Organizing Committee of Chicago gathered outside the store Monday morning demanding severance pay and re-employment for the fired staff.

    Communications director Deivid Rojas told the website: 'Three days before Christmas and not even a call. It's not fair that management and the corporation is treating (employees) this way.'

    Preston added that fired staff will be allowed to reapply for their jobs when the restaurant reopens in the new year.

    What will Nova say?


    A: They were going out of business anyway and just waited to make the unions look bad

    B: Who cares they were probably all Illegal Mexicans.

    C: What your not blaming Obamacare ?

    D: They should have sold Duck Commander products.

    If they can't afford to pay their employees then they can't afford to be in business.

    Can't afford to pay them what? Minimum wage? Market rate? Over market rate (ie $15/hr)?

    Allrighty then Nova thinks they are better off with no job than not making at least 15.00 offer hour. Why not 25.00 Nova?

    That's not an answer to the question posed to you. Please answer which level of wage a small business is required to supply.

    And those that were part of the strike should have their applications sent to the circular file for proper processing.

    So we don't get to decide if you are properly or overly compensated.
