Kansas City Gates BBQ Retaliation Case



Take a look at this not-so-tasty story of Kansas City discrimination . . .

Newspaper: Judge says Gates & Sons Barbeque restaurant retaliated against employees

Free Lunch Deets:

A one-day strike last summer by some Kansas City workers at the Main Street restaurant of Gates & Sons Barbeque led to unlawful discrimination against restaurant employees, an administrative law judge ruled Tuesday.

The decision by Paul Bogas, a judge with the National Labor Relations Board, orders the restaurant to reinstate a long-standing free-meal benefit for workers that was taken away shortly after the labor action on July 30, 2013.

The free meal ruling kind of stings both ways but serves to remind restaurant patrons that most wait staff hate their jobs . . . Sometimes bittersweet tears cried into the food make it taste better, sometimes not.

More in a bit . . .

Niggers must have free meals, free health care, free everything! They're niggers you see and should be a protected class.

How about revoking Ollie Gates troupe of hood rats from the Swope Park Golf course ?

Do the Metro a favor and run that pack a tree fliers off and EVERYONE can then enjoy the course.

Don't cry racism as long as those black hoods run Swope . Another example of blacks ruining something great.

black bbq places always feature the cheapest, fattiest meat. That's where they cut corners

Ollie runs his place like an old time overseerer, cracking the whip on the brothers and sisters, pushing for one more bale of cotton.
Give a nig a whip, or give a nig a whipping. Which one do you suppose Ollie is?

Ollie hired me on back when I was a kid. I made it one full day at 'rib tech 'then decided I'd better move my white ass along.

I've been there at 11:15 on a weekday morning more than once only to hear that they are somehow "temporarily out" of burnt ends.

The fucking scoundrels are probably saving them for the black guys coming in later.

Bob said...

Of course, what all the BBQ joints call burnt ends are not really burnt ends. You might try asking for some brisket cut into cubes.

I believe it. The Gates have gotten way over and above BBQ with their egos and money. Putting their hands where they don't belong. Selling BBQ doesn't make you a real estate aficionado, political consultants and whatever else they're trying to do by influencing outcomes in Kansas City.

Haven't eaten there in years and won't in the future. Too salty, too little and bad taste from all of their public endorsements has made be turn away.

Good for the judge for sticking it to them.

I'll take Oklahoma Joe's any day of the week. Even the gas station location is cleaner than nasty Gates.
