#1109: Tattle-tale

March 21, 2016

Notes from the Manager

This is a relevant story about a case against Cinemark breaking wage and hour regulations being dismissed. (That’s a pretty messy case, really, but note that some of the individual claims were separately settled.)

And back in 2011, three chains were fined "child labor" violations, to the tune of $277,000. While that’s not what’s happening here (Illinois doesn't have any special restrictions for 16+ year olds and doesn't hire 14 or 15 year olds because they can’t work late enough), it is a testament to the fact that labor violations like these do occur — not necessarily because of any sort of insidious intent. Often, these violations are due to managers trying to save a buck being ignorant of the law.

The collected Multiplex Movie Reviews eBook is now available

Thursday, March 16, 2017

 

A brand spanking new eBook collecting all twenty-nine Multiplex Movie Reviews to date is now available via Gumroad. It’s priced at $1.99 and includes a bunch of strips never posted to the Multiplex site and previously only available to Kickstarter backers and Patreon patrons. Some of them are even funny!

(Please note that if you are a Book Three Kickstarter backer or current Patreon patron, you already have access to this eBook! I included a link in the latest updates on each site.)
