Bare Shelves, High Spirits As Market Basket Employees Continue Rally

Workers continued to rally outside Market Baskets across New Hampshire Tuesday.

Market Basket employees in downtown Concord line the front of the store holding signs urging customers to boycott.

Many have their faces painted red and white as drivers honk in support.

Jason Desjardins is a 22-year employee at the Concord store and says they’ll keep protesting until longtime CEO Arthur T. Demoulas is reinstated.

“They would have to fire us all. We’re all united and they’ve got 25,000 employees in 71 stores that are standing up now and not backing down. We won’t stand for the corporate greed and the firing of Arthur T. Demoulas."

Inside the store, some shelves were bare, as deliveries have been limited.

The chain has already fired several employees in response to the demonstrations.

Governor Maggie Hassan has called on Market Basket to resolve the situation with a focus on keeping workers employed and not impacting customers.
