Business Idea: Marxist, Vegan Restaraunt

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It would be collectivist and feature a vegan, vegetarian and raw food menu. It would have no bosses or managers, all employees will get a “living wage” and it will have a strong union. Menus and hours of operation would be decided by worker voting.

What? It has been tried? Where? Grand Rapids, Michigan? Really? Well. How did it turn out?

A “Marxist” “collectivist” “worker-run” restaurant in Grand Rapids, Michigan, closed its doors this week after customers complained that they could no longer tolerate the bizarre hours, high prices and long lines.

People frequently noted on the restaurant’s Facebook page that they waited more than 40 minutes for a sandwich—and that’s when the diner was even open. Because the employees set the shop’s hours by group decision, the restaurant opened and closed at random times, leaving potential sandwich buyers totally confused.

Well damn. Who could have guessed it wouldn’t work?
