Walter, you are a Rare and Precious Species of Dolt. Obviously, you've never worked in a kitchen.. STFU.
Hate to go all conspiracy here but this story is pretty suspicious to me. Why would someone purchase a business with great reviews, press and reputation and then change the name?
That's either an un-wise business person or the story is not true. Either way I'm bummed. I loved that place.
If you haven't been to the festival or seen the videos, you just won't understand. This is not an issue of eating a certain type of animal, this is about publicly torturing animals and maximizing their suffering. This is unnecessarily cruel and just horrific
"The LIES behind the TRUTH, and the TRUTH behind those LIES....." -- said best by Don Asmussen - the BAD REPORTER.
I too am absolutely appalled and disappointed by these allegations and have to take them very seriously as Asian Law Caucus, Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center, and Centro Legal de la Raza would only file a class action suit if the charged have credibility. I too will be boycotting Burma Superstar unless they are exonerated. Eating there would turn my stomach as we have labor laws for a reason as immigrants and non-English speakers are often the ones oppressed in these restaurants. I know Burma is making a LOT of $ which makes this case even more unfortunate and sad.
REALLY Walter M?! Withholding paychecks illegally from multiple employees sounds like a witchhunt to you? There is nothing funny about this. Employers who abuse minimum wage employees should be held accountable and fined to discourage this practice. It is simply unacceptable to take advantage of workers who are the lowest paid and often don't speak English well. I will certainly boycott Burma Superstar - it was my favorite restaurant! The food is fabulous - but not at the expense of abusing employees. Important for patrons to know this.
Sounds like a one-sided witch hunt. Looks like their lawyers are having a field day with this one. ha ha ha
No way I would ever want to be a restaurant owner in the San Francisco bay area with all these lawsuits. One of my favorite restaurants in SF, Beetlenut, closed down recently. I wonder if it was because of one of these kinds of lawsuits. I miss their food. :(
A 2-1 decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals bars businesses from sharing tips given to waiters, bartenders and other staff with back-of-house employees such as dishwashers and cooks. I think that's important to note when sharing potentially inflammatory information like this:
"Many of these issues concern the disparity in pay between front-of-house and back-of-house employees, as generally only FOH employees benefit from tips — an issue that disproportionately affects people of color given that they are more likely to work in the kitchen."
This place was basically my introduction to Oakland. Very sad to see it go.
