Those wacky fellas at Emeryville's Woodfin Suites Hotel just never stop having fun. Here's the latest example of their jocular ways. Back in 2005, Emeryville residents passed a living wage ordinance, but it seems the hotel's managers didn't want to comply. The city was forced to sue Woodfin in 2007, and now, according to the East Bay Business Times, a federal judge has sided with Emeryville, ordering the hotel to pay some $200,000 in back wages to 50 employees. Honestly, four years of fighting for $200,000? Those Woodfin guys really know how to pinch a penny.
