chicoga sanwich shop fires employees just two days before christmas

"Bah humbug!" doesn't even BEGIN to do this story justice!!

Snarf's Sub Shop in Chicago had some HORRIBLE news for their employees this weekend when they announced they would be cleaning house due to poor business and fired their entire staff of 20 employees just two days before Christmas!

The struggling sandwich joint broke the news via email and wrote:

"Due to increased competition and losses, ownership has decided to consider remodeling and reconcepting the store at 600 West Chicago Ave. The store is closing, effective tomorrow, December 23, 2013 for an unknown period of time for this remodeling and reconcepting. All staff is terminated, effective Monday, December 23, 2013."

Wow! That's even worse than a text message break up!

While the timing couldn't be ANY worse, Snarf's director of marketing Jill Preston says the had been planning the move for some time and employees should have seen it coming:

"We really regret our employees were given last-minute notice, but they were aware of the loss of business during the past year."

Oh, well that makes it better. Except it totally doesn't at all!!

The move has sparked outrage from the Worker's Organizing Committee of Chicago who protested outside of the restaurant on Monday, demanding they re-hire their employees!

However, that doesn't seem likely as Snarf's will be closing down and remodeling as a burger joint, but Jill did say that the fired staff could apply for their jobs once the restaurant opens up again. You know, just to rub a little salt in the wound!

We're going to go out on a limb here and say NOBODY is going to want to work at a place that fired their entire staff right before the holidays!

    That's the way it goes. I'm sure it wasn't malicious "It's Christmas…. hmmmm, let me see…. you're all fired, now fuck off…"

    They probably went as long as they could, and then what are you gonna do? If you can't pay the employees, you better off letting them go, and if you can, by all means switch it up, and bring them back if they want it, rather than make them work for free, or knowing you can't pay them, in a failing business.

    Technically they weren't fired, they were laid off, in which case, I don't know about the States, but in Canada, if you are laid off, you are eligible for unemployment insurance, which is 60% of your income, based on the average of your last few pays. Better than nothing, but the employees SHOULD have seen it coming. That's true.

    "fired"…. somehow, I don't believe they were "fired". The term "fired" should be reserved for people let go from for a good reason, where they are to blame for something.

    I'm not even a business owner.

    Re: davidguerin – I can't tell if you're a bot or a genuine commenter.

    What kind of an idiot, would go to a wedsite on your advice for a "job"? Who would trust your ass?

    What you do is like me. Learn how to write up a good resume, and keep that formula. I was lucky enough to be shown a good one, many years ago, that has not failed me yet, and still works to this day, especially with a good mix of genuine accumulated experience and references. Then you look for places hiring, you pick and choose what you would be willing to try, and what you know you can do, you throw resumes out left and right, 10, 20, as many as you can every day. You go to your interviews, you make a good impression, and if you are not still receiving calls for interviews from places you applied to 2, 3 months after you start your new job… you're hopeless….

    EVERY TIME I really try to find a job, like really try, I have a decent one, sometimes choosing between places, within a month. I get hired at 2, 3 places, and have to choose without telling any of them.

    the laws change on obamacare change soon. if you have more then 50 employees you have to provide health care for them. Unless you hire mexicans, if you hire mexicans you don't have to pay for them. Its the gospel truth. its part of the healthcare plan. When Pelosi said you got to pass the bill to find out whats in it, she wasn't lying. trust me it gets worse. All that laughing people did at Sarah Palin, you won't laughing once your family member gets sick and you meet the death panels for yourself. Sarah Palin was the ONLY ONE telling the truth. merry christmas, don't let obamacare get you. heres another warning, I've been studying obamacare, medicaid might sound like a good deal but its not if you own ANYTHING. the fine print says if you own ANYTHING it belongs to the government. if you own a home with a spouse when you die, your spouse will have to fight the government to keep their home. its already happening, beware.

    'The wave of criticism towards the company is due to the fact that many of the 18 fired employees had partaken in a nationwide day of action earlier this month aimed at pressuring fast-food companies to pay their low-level employees a higher wage. A company spokeswoman told a publication that while the strikes were “tough on us as a business,” the firings were not in retaliation for the walkouts.'
    Why would you leave out a critical half of the story?

    Im sure they just wanted to close before draining anymore money. They workers would be off on the 24th and 25th anyway. But hopefully he can hire them back after the renovation or hire them to help in building it.
