On September 10, one of the stores in the gun-free Chipotle chain “temporarily closed” after employees “walked off the job,” citing their work environment/conditions.
This particular Chipotle was located in State College, Pennsylvania.
According to Eater.com, the employees affixed a note to the drive-thru window explaining their actions: “Want to know why we are closed? Ask our corporate offices why we are forced to work in borderline sweatshop conditions.”
On May 20, Breitbart News reported that Chipotle banned guns in their restaurants. By doing this, Chipotle became one of the first of six businesses which Moms Demand Action successfully pressured into disarming law-abiding citizens. (The others are Chili’s, Sonic, Target, Jack in the Box, and Panera.)
