Follow the Market Basket Controversy Live on Twitter
Employees, customers, and local supporters of the Market Basket supermarket chain are rallying in support of former CEO Arthur T. Demoulas. A rally on Friday of last week, and this morning have taken place at the supermarket's headquarters in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, while Portsmouth is holding a rally today that started at noon. Coverage from each rally can be followed using #marketbasket on Twitter.
The origins of the controversy go back nearly twenty years, but only recently have employees taken action against upper management. An article on Boston.com gives an excellent explanation of the situation.
