    Of you part time can you get unemployment ?

    I know at my work some times when where slow we have shit down weeks, if you don't have pto where able to file for unemployment to cover for those weeks(this a odd rule like of its just one week we can't . But if the second week we can get unemployment . But the two weeks don't have to be In a row .
    I never bothered doing it cause it just seemed like a big pain .

    I drove past 2 stores on the way to work. I think the employees are getting worn out. They don't look as enthusiastic and there were a lot fewer of them.

    Or maybe they just all went to the beach. It's a nice day.

    Im sure that is what management is counting on. I am sure it has not impacted and of the Demoulas or the board of directors lifestyles at all

    She's trying to be cute to avoid paying out unemployment. Given the MB history of never having layoffs and apparently NOT being a revolving door of new employees, their unemployment contribution rate is probably pretty low, for a retailer. That will change in a hurry. Plus, I read something about trying to avoid "layoffs" because then even part-timers can withdraw from their profit-sharing plan and the cash drain would hurt. The Artie S. shareholders created this s**tstorm, but Frick and Frack have a lot of headaches coming.

    i thought the reason most of the pols are silent on this is that the various Demoulas are big campaign contributors. Nothing like a few bux at campaign time to help you look the other way when the Mass workers are suffering.

    how do you spell hypocryte?

    Update on news.

    They offered Artie T a job, but NOT as CEO.

    I don't see him coming back in any capacity other than CEO. Even if he believes his purchase bid will be accepted I just don't see it happening.

    honestly, i am sick of this shit.
    customers have been DFL in this whole thing. so guess what? even if things are back to normal at MB monday morning, i am done there. screw the whole thing.

    at least until s$s or shaws or whoever, ticks me off. I used to go to Crosbys for quick trips, but once I bought some proscuitto that turned out to be green when i got home. That was 4 years ago, havent been back since. personal boycott, for my mental health. LOL.

    WBZ added the statement to the end of their article.

    Good for Artie T to come out and say that he's made three offers now, and all rejected.

    S and the crew can screw. I haven't bought a damn thing in there since the boycott started, and I won't go back unless T gets the store.

    It doesn't make sense that a person can get unemployment when they voluntarily walked off the job.

    This is one of the many reasons why America is failing.

    So now we have no choice but to support the workers through our tax dollars.

    Hypocrite [thinking]
