Where's Dollar Bill when we want him? "Progressive" pizzeria pays staff huge salaries, serves mediocre, over-priced pies, goes out of business.

 But your waitperson gets health benefits!

But your waitperson gets health benefits!

"In the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston back in 2015, the people at the nonprofit organization Haley House came up with a novel idea. They would open a pizza shop based on the principles of economic justice and fair wages to support the community. Named Dudley Dough, the shop would pay wages far above the minimum which many people in that industry earn, with added incentives for training and community development. It was an inspiring idea.
Unfortunately for them, only two years later the place is closing down. It turns out that operating a for-profit business on the principles of a nonprofit social justice operation results in an undesirable side-effect. They were literally not producing a profit. (Boston Globe)"

Yelp reviews are mixed, but if you weed out the social justice diners (who seem to have eaten there just once, to demonstrate their commitment to "social justice"), you find customers sorely disappointed by the store's $3.75-per-slice pricing, poor service, and lousy fare.

This despite their refusal to serve pork (that would mean pepperoni) so as not to upset their Muslim (non) customers. Allah inshallah.
