commented on Local Coffee Chain Starts Charging Customers a 1.5 Percent "Sick Leave Surcharge"
I used to work across the street from a Cherry Street Coffee and I got to know the employees who worked there because I liked the coffee and food there. We'd bitch to each other about how crazy our respective bosses were, and I heard plenty about Ali. He puts up a bullshit front about peace and love with his pretentious posters but, like many business owners, treats his employees like shit and takes them for granted (hence, no sick leave). In addition, he would occasionally come into our store and condescend to us. One time he came in to yell at one of our customers for legally parking in front of his store. This move doesn't surprise me at all.

Does this mean he'll start inviting/allowing Stranger reporters at his press events?
