Former Chipotle Workers File Class Action Lawsuit

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Former Chipotle employees filed a class action lawsuit in district court Thursday.

Former workers and supporters have held several demonstrations outside the Chipolte in downtown Minneapolis.

They say there were suddenly fired by the restaurant chain in December. The former workers also say the Mexican restaurant violated Minnesota’s payment wage act.

The group’s attorney said the company has failed to pay earned wages or do so in a timely manner.

Recently a Chipolte spokesperson said the workers’ demands are misplaced and that the company is paying everyone everything they are owed.
