“They told me straight up, ‘Cut the bull—-, you no longer work here,’” said a worker named Julio, who would not give his last name, at a noontime protest in front of the Broadway business. Julio is 26 and lives in New Haven.
More than 75 people rallied for the workers, carrying signs and chanting. Three of the four workers who allegedly were let go attended, filing into the store at one point to ask for their jobs back. They were rebuffed and the group left the store.
