It’s all about me

I read the comments about Jerry Cirino closing his restaurant with sadness but not because he was closing the restaurant but because those commenting are so pathetic.

Golly, how dare he do that? Their attitude is I want my wages, health care and other benefits no matter what they cost. Just because our state and federal governments are forcing you to pay for things you can’t afford, how dare you? You know these are the same people who would claim he is greedy if he raised his prices to cover the costs.

Jerry don’t you know it is your obligation to lose money and maybe even go bankrupt paying for mandated health care and … maybe, just maybe, the complaining employees and letter writers should try running a business in the current “anti-business” environment. I’m sure you made the right decision for you, your business and current employees. Better to keep one restaurant going and your staff employed than to suffer along and then close them both down.

The only thing I disagree with you on is it is/was political as the politicians are at fault. Their liberal beliefs, greed and stupidity will kill more jobs and close many more businesses. See you in Grass Valley.
