Schumer Wants Investigation Into Friendly’s Closures

U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer is calling for a federal investigation into the closure of 23 Friendly’s restaurants across the Northeast including the Oneonta location. In a statement Schumer said As a major corporation, Friendly’s must adhere to federal laws that provide their employees with necessary updates when their employment is in imminent danger, but it doesn’t look like that happened here. A Friendly’s spokesperson says the company complied fully with all state and federal employee notice requirements.
