They also take from the community. The Nennich's own almost all of the Fina and Valero gas stations in the county. In case you have been asleep, the Silver City gas prices are 25-40 cents higher than Las Cruces and Lordsburg.

[QUOTE who=Silver City gas prices are 25-40 cents higher than Las Cruces and Lordsburg.[/QUOTE]

Consider the economics. What does it cost per person for Thanksgiving?$10 per person?(Tax deductible?) If that person buys 5 gallons of gas a week from the Nennichs, and pays an extra 25 cents per gallon (over a competitive market like Cruces), that's an extra $1.25 per week or $65 per year. Of course, it is nice of the Nennichs to do, and they certainly don't have to do anything.

If you like wage theft visit Jim and Debbie Nennich's many dilapidated stores, where there's a good chance that you'll get stabbed, then you too can support wage theft. And don't worry about shorting their employees, because it will come out of their pockets, and if they disagree -- even though there's protect under HB 489 and the FLSA -- Jim and Debbie Nennich will fire them for asserting their legal rights, because they know they run this town -- their lawyers also work for the DA's Office.

You question why there's all the 99% protests across the nation? This is why.

The food that was served was paid for with stolen money, taken from the community.
