“The servers and bussers are actually the top management team. Everyone is pitching in to help,” -Jeff Hanle, director of public relations for Aspen Skiing Co.
Aspen Skiing Co. is coming to the aid of their struggling employees in the form of free grub during this below average start to the season. CBS Denver reports that poor snow conditions mean plenty of seasonal workers aren’t making a paycheck until more terrain is opened on the resort.
Starting the day after Thanksgiving, the ski resort started feeding the unemployed workers dinner on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 100+ people are lining up for the meals, and they say it is a big help. The resort plans on Friday being the last meal they will need to serve but that is weather dependent. Fingers crossed for a blizzard!
***people talk a ton of smack about Aspen and while you may think this is just a photo-op PR stunt….the actual CEO is getting his hands dirty serving employees. Brightened up my day a bit, hope it did for you too.
