Chicago eatery Snarf's Sub Shop used to be known for its prime rib sandwiches, but last December it became notorious for something else entirely. Just three days before Christmas, the shop fired all 20 of its employees without notice over email, before closing for a period of remodeling and re-concepting. But now, after national coverage, a protest campaign, and an outpouring of community support, the shop has agreed to reinstate the fired employees with one month's pay.
