Scandalous! Cafe Dupri Shuts Down on Workers

March 22, 2009

Not only did they shut down without notice.  They left employees stranded without clearing past and last payroll checks. WTF?

About a month ago I can remember one of media takeout's readers sending in a letter regarding the shady business practices of Cafe Dupri that she so wanted the public to know about.  Many people couldn't believe it was true, but IT HAS been confirmed to be “true” and Atlanta's Channel 2 tells the story.

The only reason I'm even posting this is because it's beyond shady ANNNND I know the feeling working somewhere just to receive a bounce check.  I can totally empathize with the workers and what they are going thru.

What gets me is that JD's mom had the audacity to blame the cafe's own bad business management on the employees.  That's NERVES. Jermaine Dupri’s mother, Tina Mauldin, told Channel 2 Actions News “The restaurant closing was a “business decision”. She also took a swipe at her former employees, saying maybe if the employees had worked harder, Cafe Dupri would still be open.”

All I have to say to that is, Ms. Tina if you had known better, you would have done better.  It's obvious that the cafe business wasn't for you.
