Front Room Targeted for Protest by “ROC”; 4/8


By Carol McCracken (Post # 430)

The Restaurant Opportunities Center of Maine has scheduled another protest against the Front Room on Congress Street on the Hill for Thursday, April 8 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.

A lawsuit was filed against the Front Room Restaurant & Bar for poor business practices. According to the complaint filed by six plaintiffs in the case for a jury trial, owner Harding Smith has failed to pay the plaintiffs minimum wages and failed to pay overtime pay. There are other allegations as well. Smith has maintaned his innocence all along.

The “ROC” would like for Smith to sit down with them and try to resolve the matter to avoid the case going to court.
