Laura, that is about what I have been hearing!
Brian F Hickman July 22, 2014 at 07:57 pm
The thousands of people who showed up in protest are hard working employees and customers who wereRead More treated with honor and respect by Arthur. When employees were down, he picked them up and would treat his customers like he did his employees. Did not know the man, but from listening to interviews of employees old and young, he sounds like an "AWSOME" leader!! Good luck to all!!

Yes thanks to fracking gas is down a whole 5 cents and there are earth quakes in states that neverRead More had them before. Yay fracking.

The National Labor Relations Board will have something to say about the firings at Market Basket.Read More The new "owners" will not win. There are laws out there to protect workers in these situations, thank heavens!

Numerous "business" reporters are predicting that MB will be sold to some "hedgeRead More fund", who could care less about the customers or the employees. The hedge investors will milk it the business for all they can and then sell a few locations and close all the others. This is the Bain Capital model. You know, Bain Capital of Mitt Romney fame.

@Rick- I think they need all the shareholders to approve that sale and I don't see that happening. IRead More think Artie S underestimated the impact of this, however he obviously knew enough to not name himself CEO but rather two outsiders that can take the media hit on this. If I were the two CEO's I would resign. They can't recover from this. Perhaps Artie T should have just put in a recurring dividend payment to shareholders to provide them with some liquidity and maybe that would have kept. them happy and he could continue to run the business.

Greed and Ego ruining a successful business model. Market Basket my favorite grocery store, I hadRead More to see it with my own eyes. A thriving business, best prices, fresh meat produce and groceries. The store was alive with customers morning, noon and night. The parking lot was empty, the shelves were empty, the isles and cash registers were empty, my refrigerator is empty! I don't want to shop anywhere else. I'm hoping that greed underestimated the power of great employees and customers! That's my take!

I have seen this during all my working years you have a CEO that has harmony with employees andRead More customers and upper management decides OOPS THINGS ARE RUNNING TO SMOOTH LETS SEE WHAT WE CAN DO TO SCREW IT ALL UP and get some discontent started, maybe the employees should join the Teamsters and get some real discontent started in upper management, Get a hold of yourselves Market Basket and reinstate Arthur T and stop fixing something that isn't broken or maybe that's the problem you've had a hold of yourselves to long. hay by the way make your corporate flag a HAMMER & SICKLE.

Arthur T, step aside, like a true businessman would.

The only way we can win this fight is if each and every one of you boycott our stores!!! Don't feedRead More the greed!
Jeanny Montalvo July 17, 2014 at 10:20 pm
I just think that's not right! Arthur worked so hard to make market basket better and to be takingRead More that away it's fair to any one who stands by him! I've been in and out of the Woburn market basket with no problem and to know that all of Arthur's hard work is being taking away is heart breaking! Everyone's greed isn't healthy and to think that anyone would keep working there under another person who prob doesn't know much about the life story and how much we all care for Arthur's hard work! We all signed to keep Arthur and he won fairly and still took it all away! I don't go to market basket anymore, why should I? I should just go somewhere else like everyone should! Kill the business and let it go down! Why not?

What we have is the TRUTH, Rob, of events that happened nearly ten years ago now.. and some moronRead More shill (you) claiming without any sort of basis that the reality is otherwise. Please Rob, explain YOUR iron in this fire? You have NONE of the facts, yet you feel okay in implying I am being dishonest. I am NOT the only person Fidelity has done similar things to. So tell us, Rob, What is your purpose in claiming what happened is anything but the fact?
Rob C July 16, 2014 at 04:58 pm
Again, I just have your say as to the situation. From the sounds of it a competent attorney wouldRead More have won your case or the AG's office would have done it for free. Since neither of those happened and you appear to be so sure that you should have won, then I have to doubt your story. The internet is full of disgruntled ex employees that will say anything to put down a past employer. For all I know you could be one of those that recently had a job sent to another state and you didn't want to move so you are now out of work. Enjoy your campaign to put down your former employer.
Paul Bishop July 16, 2014 at 11:35 pm
You sir are an ass. You haven't the first idea of the situation, nor do you have the first idea ofRead More employment law as pertains to the situation. All you have is what appears to be a need to whine, when all I did was relate the facts of the events. I unfortunately had to live them, and the reality is that the public at large (SocSec) has to foot the bill. There is no disputing I am disabled, nor is there any dispute that I became disabled while employed by Fidelity, by a disability which was covered under my policy. Unfortunately, I discovered that if an employer is willing to act in this way, they actually can (and unfortunately DID) throw me to the wolves. Why this is such a problem for you to grasp is beyond comprehension.

Simple solution: Don't eat this food!, it's horrible what it does to your body!
cardiclash July 2, 2014 at 02:08 pm
If you dont like the sodium/fat/ calorie content in foods then don't eat them. It is totally yourRead More choice. People should also abstain from smoking nasty cigarettes as they cause an array of severe health concerns. What they do to your body is just as bad as crappy food!
