I read that the current CEO's were called stupid people--that is so correct. I also heard theseRead More fools own a country club in Andover and once they took over--fired the manager--the woman (I don't know her name--don't care to) stomped through the facility announcing "they" owned it -- all members resigned and left--so they have an empty country club--and now 71 almost empty stores and yet they refuse to give in--so yes, stupid, self-entitled, money-grubbing fools--once they are borke--wonder what they'll do?

Laura, that is about what I have been hearing!

The thousands of people who showed up in protest are hard working employees and customers who wereRead More treated with honor and respect by Arthur. When employees were down, he picked them up and would treat his customers like he did his employees. Did not know the man, but from listening to interviews of employees old and young, he sounds like an "AWSOME" leader!! Good luck to all!!

Matt July 22, 2014 at 12:06 pm
Yes thanks to fracking gas is down a whole 5 cents and there are earth quakes in states that neverRead More had them before. Yay fracking.

I admire Mr Trainor's personal conviction and willingness to stand up for what he believes in. IRead More also appreciate his acknowledgement that his actions could and did result in his job loss. The employees were told termination would be the result if they followed through with their ultimatums. Both sides stood by their words. A difficult situation for so many.

My wife says the new management or owners want to raise prices to about what S&S and Shaws have.Read More So why should I buy a apples at MB for the same price I can at a store I drive by to get to MB?

The National Labor Relations Board will have something to say about the firings at Market Basket.Read More The new "owners" will not win. There are laws out there to protect workers in these situations, thank heavens!

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

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 !
