THE 99% SCORE ONE FOR THE WORKING AMERICANS
The beloved chief executive of the New England grocery chain Market Basket, Arthur T. Demoulas, has been reinstated in what experts are calling a testament to the power of passionate employees.
“You have demonstrated to the world that it is a person’s moral obligation and social responsibility to protect a culture which provides an honorable and a dignified place in which to work,” Demoulas said at a rally Thursday where employees whooped and hollered as passing cars honked to show support.
"I feel like I won the lottery," Market Basket truck driver Buddy Wemmers told The Boston Globe.
"I'm thrilled, this is epic," said Tom Trainor, a district supervisor, told the Boston Herald.
Gary Sessa, a front end manager at the chain's Tewksbury store, told WFXT-TV that company bakers came in at midnight after hearing the news and started baking cakes that say "Welcome back Artie T: Market Basket Strong."
