Snarf's Workers Canned Before Christmas Rehired

A River North sandwich shop that fired 20 of its employees via email days before Christmas has hired the employees back.

According to a news release from the Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago, the employees not only received their jobs back, they will also receive a month's pay.

A spokesman for the Colorado-based sandwich shop chain said the 600 W. Chicago was closing because the company planned to remodel and reconcept the business.

A few days later, the CEO and founder of the company apologized for the "insensitive and poorly planned" firings, and promised one week's back pay for the workers.

Snarf's issued a statement Monday saying some "employees accepted reinstatement, while others chose not to."

The sandwich shop had a soft opening on Monday and a Snarfburger will open next door in a couple of weeks.
