The Lexington's new owners invited sharp public criticism after the news media reported that they fired all of the restaurant's employees---some of whom had apparently been with the Lex for more than 15 years---immediately after taking control and closing for remodeling. The owners, to the best of my knowledge, have declined to offer any public explanation for their business decision to change out the entire staff before reopening.
The human resources decision by the Lexington's owners is in sharp contrast to the decision made by the San Pedro Cafe's owners, reported in today's Pioneer Press by Kathie Jenkins: "SAN PEDRO CAFE is getting a long-overdue makeover. The 11-year old downtown Hudson WI Caribbean restaurant will close after brunch service Sunday and reopen May 20.'The entire space will be gutted and remodeled,' says owner Peter Foster.'It will be the same concept, same menu, same staff, but definitely a notch up in looks.'"
Thanks, Mr. Foster, for valuing your employees and not cutting them loose in today's challenging and often harsh job market.
