Chips and guacamole.
There aren’t a lot of perks that go along with slinging salsa for Chipotle, but a discount on food is one of them. So, Cruz Pacheco was a little caught off-guard when she was fired over the summer and accused of stealing a bag of salty chips and a cup of creamy guacamole.
What didn’t surprise her was the timing. For weeks she had been complaining about short-notice changes to her hours that made it difficult to schedule doctors’ appointments for her mentally ill daughter.
When Pacheco accused managers in the Union Square Chipotle where she worked of violating the city’s fair workweek law, she said, she was tossed out with the leftover lettuce.
