It looks like she hired ALL NEW employees through an open interview day last week. Looking for cooks, servers, baristas. Why would she have to hire all new employees? Did all her previous employees find employment within a week or two? I highly doubt it.
Thanks to our fine Economic Development Director and the way he has spun this story, she's back in business. You ask if the city would bail anyone else out? Hell, no. Would they have a fundraiser to keep your doors open? Hell, no.
The owner of this business fell in a vat of shit, and thanks to City Hall, she crawled out of it smelling like a rose (thanks to some media damage control team) after slinging all that shit onto her former employees. Well done, City Hall, well done.
