LIZ: CHIPOTLE IN THE CROSSHAIRS. NEW YORK CITY TODAY SLAPPED THE RESTAURANT CHAIN WITH A LAWSUIT ACCUSING CHIPOTLE OF VIOLATING THE CITY’S FAIR WORK WEEK LAWS. NEW YORK CITY LOOKING FOR A MILLION DOLLARS IN RESTITUTION PLUS PENALTIES. SHARES OF CHIPOTLE GOT SLAMMED ON THIS NEWS CLOSING DOWN MORE THAN 6%. NEW YORK CITY MAYOR BILL DE BLASIO JOINING US NOW HERE IN STUDIO IN A FOX BUSINESS EXCLUSIVE. THANK YOU FOR COMING ON.>>THANK YOU. LIZ: THIS IS AN IMPORTANT BUSINESS STORY. WE AS A BUSINESS NETWORK ARE VERY MUCH FOCUSED ON THIS. LET’S TALK ABOUT SOME ACCUSATIONS YOU SAY CHIPOTLE FAILED TO GIVE ESTIMATE WORK SCHEDULES TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE, COUPLE OF OTHER ISSUES SAYING YOU CAN’T CHANGE SCHEDULES L.A. MINUTE. — LAST MINUTE. AS WE LOOK AT THIS AS A BUSINESS NETWORK, THE STOCK GOT SLAMMED ON THIS. WHY NOT JUST WORK DIRECTLY WITH CHIPOTLE BEFORE MAKING A FORMAL COMPLAINT AND HURTING WHAT COULD BE THE RESTAURANT CHAIN AND THEIR HIRING ABILITIES?>>LOOK, THIS IS BASED ON A LAW THAT WAS PASSED THAT WAS WELL PUBLICIZED. WE HAD A GRACE PERIOD FOR COMPANIES TO GET TO UNDERSTAND OUT AND ACT ON IT. WHEN YOU HAVE A COMPANY OF THAT SIZE, THAT’S BEEN — HAD THE RULES EXPLAINED SO CLEARLY. WE BELIEVE THAT WORKING PEOPLE NEED TO BE RESPECTED. FOLKS NEED TO BE ABLE TO PLAN THEIR LIVES, THEIR FAMILY’S LIVES. ONE OF THE ISSUES AND YOU SEE IT FROM SOME OF THE WORKERS WHO HAVE SPOKEN UP AND FILED THE COMPLAINTS IS YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR KID TO THE DOCTOR, IF YOU HAVE THINGS IN YOUR LIFE THAT ACTUALLY HAVE TO SCHEDULE IN ADVANCE, YOU NEED THE ABILITY TO HAVE SOME SENSE OF WHEN YOU’RE WORKING OR NOT WORKING. THAT’S WHAT THE LAW IS ALL ABOUT, CREATING A LITTLE MORE DIGNITY, MORE DECENCY IN WORKING PEOPLE’S LIVES. THESE ARE NOT NEW RULES. THEY WERE WELL PUBLICIZED.

  1. A TRUE LEADER HAS THE CONFIDENCE TO STAND ALONE
    THE COURAGE TO MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS
    THE COMPASSION TO LISTEN TO THE NEEDS OF OTHERS
    HE DOES NOT SET OUT TO BE A LEADER
    BUT BECOMES ONE BY THE EQUALITY OF HIS ACTIONS
    AND THE INTEGRITY OF HIS INTENT.
    THIS IS AMERICA'S CHOSEN PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP !

  2. Just the latest example of Democrats wanting to assume control of every single business on their path to installation of a full socialist regime .

  3. This guy is an idiot has never had to do work schedules in real life.
    Reality can't be determined 2 weeks in advance. The left lives in an alternate universe.

  4. Chipotle needs to sue DiBlasio for fraud, gross incompetence, gross negligence and because he is a useless sack of crap… Kinda like a chipotle burro…

  5. Commisar deblasio attacking the companies to be controlled by the state. How are marxists and people who are anti semitic who support foreign terror groups allowed to run for office and be either governors or in Congress? Capitalism shouldn't allow marxists and racist terrorists to upset the balance. Ny is russia for business and the Democrats are regulating companies out of existence.

  6. De-blasé-o is hoping that by creating a media storm over this, that the "working people" will support him in his presidential bid…What do you think? Do you think that the real working people are this stupid?

  7. Lol ..there goes his Chipotle stockholder votes. He has already lost the vote of every law enforcement employee and their families. He can withdraw now.

  8. Omg i actually agree with big bird.
    I do think that employers should not change employees schedule from week to week giving them no ability to plan their activities.

  9. Finally being held accountable for their worker abuses. All their digital accounts got hacked and the company did absolutely nothing to resolve it.

  10. This announcement isn't about being an advocate for employees, no matter how many fake tears this political opportunist sheds. Knowing it would tank the stock makes it a perfect vehicle to buy influence among "friends" (at no cost) who are more than eager to have any easy money opportunity to short a stock. NYC has only corruption. The superheroes are only on Netflix. You can't leave it up to The Punisher or Daredevil, NYC voters. I wish you could! They'd do a better job than you. Well, The Punisher would.

  11. For the 1st time in 5 Years I am Not Listening to Trump speak.
    I will not View anymore Rallies, too date I have viewed them all.
    Fed Up with your Talk Trump..
    Time to Walk the Walk
    Or this Patriot is Not Voting in 2020
    Are you Listening?

  12. He is making it,very hard to consider doing business in New York City. Elections have concequences…stay there and,go,broke.
