Last month, 13 Wendy's fast food restaurants in Western Massachusetts closed abruptly, leaving at least 350 workers without jobs, and without pay for time already worked. The Wendy's restaurants were owned by an Ohio businessman who, according to documents filed in Springfield District Court, had stopped making payments months ago on loans he took out to open some of the restaurants. Wendy's International, the parent corporation for all franchises, has stated that they'll ensure Western Massachusetts workers get paid for the hours worked at the now-shuttered eateries. WFCR's Tina Antolini spoke with Wendy's spokesman Denny Lynch about who's responsible when chain restaurants suddenly close.
