Restaurant workers alleging wage theft to protest tonight in Andersonville
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. That seems to be the motto for the workers of Ole Ole, an Andersonville “nuevo latino” eatery who will protest — again — outside the restaurant tonight, asking for more than $125,000 $100,000 in unpaid wages.
The workers charge that the restaurant owes them for minimum wage violations, for unpaid overtime and for improper deductions from their paychecks. It’s not like this is the first time they’ve brought this up. They planned to protest outside the prominent Clark Street location in December, but that demonstration was averted at the last minute when the owner agreed to negotiations. When the negotiations never happened, they protested on Jan. 6. Tonight, at 7 p.m., they’ll be back outside the restaurant. At least this time it won’t be as cold.
