Police Beat

Your Boss's Money or Your Life


I will never get over seeing the employees of the downtown department stores in 1999 standing in window displays of the Bon, etc., put there presumably so that the demonstrators against the WTO wouldn't smash the glass. I want so badly to talk to those workers, and find out why they would do this. What they were told so that they would do such a thing. More than that, I would love to speak to their managers, the ones who made this astonishing decision to treat people like props and shields for ... stuff.
The most likely answer would seem to be that the employee wanted the robber to leave as soon as possible more than they wanted the buck-fifty that's in most Subway tip jars.
Who tips at Subway?
