Having grown up where I did, I was always way more of a Krispy Kreme guy myself. Maybe I need to rethink some things.
The world famous doughnut maker Dunkin’, outraged that some franchises are not using the required E-Verify system to make sure its workers are documented, has moved to oust the owners and take over the restaurants.
According to several reports, the Massachusetts-based breakfast and lunch restaurant, which recently changed its name from Dunkin’ Donuts, has sued to stop those franchise owners from operating.
The most recent suits were filed in Delaware and Pennsylvania, “amid what appears to be a crackdown on franchisees employment verification practices,” according to Restaurant Business.
A post from Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, said, “Each of the lawsuits is similar. They each said that Dunkin’ reviewed employment verification documents and practices, found violations at the subject franchisee companies, terminated the operators’ franchise agreements and then swiftly moved to remove the franchisees from the restaurants.”
The doughnut, sandwich, and coffee firm has said it won’t comment on pending legislation.
Quietly doing the right thing without any fanfare, publicity-seeking, or chest-thumping over their superior morality: this right here is what proper corporate responsibility, ethics, and citizenship look like, people. Hats off to ’em, I say. If more American companies took Dunkin’s approach to E-Verify, our illegal-alien problem would rapidly be a thing of the past. If cake donuts ain’t your bag, you might at least consider dropping them a line expressing your support and thanks. I did.
