The demonstrators say that workers at the business have been faithfully showing up to work, but the owner has been cutting employee hours.  Family members of employees at the location asserted that without 4 weeks of income, the holiday season has been hard to bear. The owner of the business declined to comment.

I've been wondering about that place for awhile. I went there for many years but stopped going when they no longer would take credit cards. I continued to use the carwash for awhile but gave it up when too often some were out of service. I thought for sure that they would be going out of business. The workers were always excellent and probably,much better than what the owner deserved. It is criminal not to be paid on a timely manner for services rendered. It appears that the owner has been ignorant of his responsibility to his workers and the public.

I personally know one of the employees. he is a very hard working, dedicated man. They should not be treated this way. He has a family to take care of.
