The Market Basket in Somerville, MA where I live is doing hardly any business at all. The reason? Most of the workers—and many customers—are outside. As Bloomberg reports:
Thousands of the supermarket chain’s employees have organized rallies at their local stores and at the company’s headquarters during the last week. Were these employees rallying for higher wages, better benefits, and predictable schedules — the needs so many retail employees face? No, they were demonstrating to help their ousted CEO, Arthur T. Demoulas, get his job back (he was fired in June after [a] coup led by his cousin, Arthur S. Demoulas).
