Market Basket madness
Market Basket is owned by the Demoulas family. Two cousins are shareholders in the businesses Artie T. and Arthur S.
Artie T. is known to be the beloved champion of the worker. Artie S. wants to wrangle control from him, and did indeed successfully oust Artie T.
This made Market Basket employees angry because they like what Artie T. has done for them, providing fair wages, benefits and bonuses.
The warehouse workers and truck drivers are on strike, so no fresh produce or meats are making it to the store. The employees of Market Basket have even started a fund to help the warehouse workers weather the storm of the strike. You can donate here.
More information on this issue can be found at http://wearemarketbasket.com/
My thoughts go out to the striking employees. Good luck!
Oh, and like them on Facebook.
