Harry, "All of the Demoulas men are very wealthy". If this is so, I do not understand whyRead More would employees earning about 12 - 30$/hr are risking their jobs for either of them?. CEOs getting fired is not a new concept.

This is a privately owned company. I wouldn't want my employees trying to tell me how to run myRead More company. Even if I were making a mistake it is my mistake to make. The people who own this company made a business decision that they had every right to make. How is this in any involving politicians?

I can understand why the employees are doing what they are doing and I will not stand in the way.Read More But what I need to get off my chest is that tonight while at work, I was listening to a guy telling my co worker that Arthur Demoulas was fired for stealing over 26 million dollars from his family. While my blood was boiling over I had to walk away and complained to my coworkers manager who then pulled the coworker away from this guy. So your thinking who was this guy making the comments, he works for a company who was hired by market Baskets corporate office to replace the employees who walked away. This looser has no right to come in and start making comments he knows nothing about. This company brought in close to 80 plus replacements to drive and work the warehouses. Sad part is this looser will be here for at least two weeks and I can not say anything to him about keeping his mouth shut or I could lose my job...what I will say is they are all staying at local hotels in the area!

I was there yesterday, unaware really as to what was going on. I wont be back until this is settledRead More in Arthur T's favor. Interesting story though.

You have to ask yourself two questions: A lot of these employees do not know all the details of theRead More family feud and that's okay. Heck many of them were not even born yet! Why would so many people stand beside one man if he was not all they say he is? The next question is: These people are refusing to work for Arthur S. There must be a reason they are willing to lose their jobs rather than work under him? WHY! Stand strong employees and customers!

Stand strong employee's and stand together for what you believe in.

To hell with the first Boycott them till they bring Arthur T. back.

What we have is the TRUTH, Rob, of events that happened nearly ten years ago now.. and some moronRead More shill (you) claiming without any sort of basis that the reality is otherwise. Please Rob, explain YOUR iron in this fire? You have NONE of the facts, yet you feel okay in implying I am being dishonest. I am NOT the only person Fidelity has done similar things to. So tell us, Rob, What is your purpose in claiming what happened is anything but the fact?
Rob C July 16, 2014 at 04:58 pm
Again, I just have your say as to the situation. From the sounds of it a competent attorney wouldRead More have won your case or the AG's office would have done it for free. Since neither of those happened and you appear to be so sure that you should have won, then I have to doubt your story. The internet is full of disgruntled ex employees that will say anything to put down a past employer. For all I know you could be one of those that recently had a job sent to another state and you didn't want to move so you are now out of work. Enjoy your campaign to put down your former employer.
Paul Bishop July 16, 2014 at 11:35 pm
You sir are an ass. You haven't the first idea of the situation, nor do you have the first idea ofRead More employment law as pertains to the situation. All you have is what appears to be a need to whine, when all I did was relate the facts of the events. I unfortunately had to live them, and the reality is that the public at large (SocSec) has to foot the bill. There is no disputing I am disabled, nor is there any dispute that I became disabled while employed by Fidelity, by a disability which was covered under my policy. Unfortunately, I discovered that if an employer is willing to act in this way, they actually can (and unfortunately DID) throw me to the wolves. Why this is such a problem for you to grasp is beyond comprehension.

How about an AMERICAN clothing store!!!
Kathleen July 15, 2014 at 01:17 pm
Totally agree Pat...just what we need, more cheaply made (using slave labor), yet overpricedRead More Japanese products flooding the U.S.! We deserve it though since our country sold out to China & Japan a long time ago.

If the industry does it, that's fine. When the government dictates it, that's not fine.

Simple solution: Don't eat this food!, it's horrible what it does to your body!
cardiclash July 2, 2014 at 02:08 pm
If you dont like the sodium/fat/ calorie content in foods then don't eat them. It is totally yourRead More choice. People should also abstain from smoking nasty cigarettes as they cause an array of severe health concerns. What they do to your body is just as bad as crappy food!

I went to this place a few weeks ago, they were out of about half of the items on the menu, theRead More girls that were dressed in spandex, looked ridiculous, as well as the place needs to be vacuumed and bleached.....will never go back!
MR X June 20, 2014 at 06:27 am
your right Janine ..... Dean Borders,will remain the owner ROFL he think a new pant and aRead More cleaning will get people in lol I don't think so
townie June 20, 2014 at 07:46 am
I went there the other day and watched as the female bar tender texted and talked to anotherRead More employee about a guy who was texting her on her cell phone. She spent most of her time looking at her phone. Employees should not have their phones out while working. They need that big guy from Bar Rescue TV show to come in there and shake things up !

Who is Katy Perry? Is she a soccer player?
Joe Viglione June 13, 2014 at 01:55 pm
Thanks, Susan, I was being facetious because I've never heard her sing, that I know of and thinkRead More most of us could care less. Why can't today's generation come up with a new Beatles? Oh, that's right, they would have to know how to sing and compose and produce great music and shape a good image!
