Lynn's Paradise Cafe accused of abusing workers, unfair policies - wave3.com-Louisville News, Weather & Sports
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - One of the most popular restaurants in town is under fire by the people who work there.
On Friday, Kentucky Jobs with Justice and former and current employees of Lynn's Paradise Cafe started their campaign, hoping to get things changed. They say there are numerous problems from not being notified of their shifts, to being harassed, to a new policy that requires servers to carry $100 cash on them at all times so they can tip out to co-workers.
The stories Kentucky Jobs with Justice Executive Director Flaco Aleman has heard from Lynn's workers are endless. "Just the amount of disrespect and abuse, verbal abuse… brought tears to my eyes," Aleman said.
Aleman, several volunteers and current and former employees are the ones responsible for flyers left on cars surrounding Lynn's Paradise Cafe. They're on a mission to educate. "If the restaurant workers are fed up where they're ready to take action, it's more than just a case of a disgruntled employee who's mad over a simple issue," Aleman said.
They're all coming forward after two people were fired last week over a new policy. "It was January 2nd
I was terminated," said a former employee who wanted to remain anonymous. "That was the day the new policy for $100 for each server went into place." continued........
