Chick-fil-A gets a bad rap from liberals, but the fast food chain and its ownership do far more for the community than people realize.
In Indiana, one franchise owner closed his restaurant for remodeling, but he is going to keep his staff working by paying them to do community service until the store is ready to open again.
Hated by Liberals
For those not familiar with the food chain, a company rule is all stores are closed on Sundays.
This is done so employees have at least one day a week to set aside for worship, family, and rest.
Religious observance is obviously not mandated for company employees, but it influences the chain’s philosophy of ensuring quality of life for its employees.
“We don’t claim to be a Christian business,” said Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy. “But as an organization we can operate on biblical principles.”
That, however, has been a talking point of liberals since the company first opened its doors. And when Cathy said that he supports the “traditional family,” the left really got mad.
What liberals fail to recognize is the strong sense of community that is promoted by these stores.
Surf the internet and you will regularly see stories of Chick-fil-A owners, managers, and employees doing something charitable.
We have seen them feed homeless people, dedicate tables to our veterans, and do wonderful things in their community.
In this particular case, the owner could have left his staff and the community high and dry for the three months of the store’s renovation.
Rather than do that, though, he decided to make sure his employees continue to earn their paychecks while also giving back to the community that supports his business.
His staff will now be deployed to local schools, parks, rec centers, non-profits, and a local center that helps homeless people “transition back to work.”
With the loss of business, the cost of renovations, and paychecks for his staff, this man is probably putting himself out hundreds of thousands of dollars.
That is not good enough for liberals, though.
They would rather celebrate the likes of Rev. Al Sharpton, who is an outright racist, has called for the death of police, and skipped out on paying his taxes.
