I bit the bullet yesterday and for the first time in decades did not shop at Market Basket. InsteadRead More I hit Walmart and Hannafords. I paid through the nose, with some items as much as 80% higher than what I'm used to paying at Market Basket. And the selection at both Walmart and Hannafords is utterly pathetic compared to Market Basket, But I support the workers and I'll continue shopping elsewhere until the employees are satisfied.

The employees not only have the right to do this, they are doing it and very proud of them. They areRead More not only exercising their right to free speech but also showing their loyalty to a man whom they highly respected and admired. That kind of loyalty is hard to come by nowadays. So If you can't understand why people would place their livelyhoods on the line for someone then I'm sorry for you. If I owned my own company I would hire every single one of these people who are putting their jobs on the line for a man who took great care of them. That kind of love for a boss, his employees, and his customers is obsolete today. I respect his integrity and the integrity of the workers. Nowadays we are only numbers collecting paychecks and we are dispensable. This man saw his employees as human beings not as human doings. I pray he gets reinstated. When did everyone become so disconnected and hard hearted? They have every right to do what they are doing and I hope they succeed. God bless Arthur and all the people standing up for his reinstatement!
Mary Ann Pavone-Smith July 21, 2014 at 08:35 pm
P.S. Shame on them for firing 7 loyal employees who have worked there for a collective total of 280Read More years. Shame on you MB. SHAME ON YOU!
dubilpie July 21, 2014 at 08:50 pm
I respect that they are exercising their right to free speech, but they claim to care about theirRead More customers and they are hurting them and the very company paying them. When I as a customer walk into a MB and am told by the employees I should be boycotting the store, that to me is starting to border on harassment. I still stand by my comment, if these people worked for me, I would fire any and all who hinder my business. I applaud any that feel it is worth the risk of losing their job, but don't complain about losing it when it happens. I run my own company, and if any employees of mine did all this because they didn't approve of any of my business decisions, they would be shown the door. No one is irreplaceable especially in this economy. My business, my rules. I would be willing to hear them out and they just might change my mind, but if not and they hindered my business and my customers comfort, they would be fired in a heart beat. From what I saw at MB this afternoon, people are starting to get fed up with this nonsense. The prices at MB aren't as good as they used to be, so if the company gets sold, life will go on. Personally I didn't like to shop at other supermarkets that had unions because I am not a big believer in unions anymore, but it seems like some MB employees are acting like union thugs anyway.

So 9/566= 1.6% over an arbitrary limit that has little relationship to the ability to drive a car. My opinion is that this is a waste of police time and resources.
