So-Called Ex-Staffer Sounds Off on Taix's Owner

By

After praising Echo Park's classic Taix for its role hosting last week's forum on abuses in L.A.'s restaurant industry, blogger Javier Cabral got an earful from a reader who claims to be an angry ex-employee at Taix who just filed his resignation. In a pointed missive, the mad staffer writes of the current owner: "Mike Taix is an entitled, disrespectful, cheapskate opportunist that shaves off hours on paychecks, requires employees to log in breaks that they do not take and are not paid for, buys the cheapest of products and passes it off the good stuff at a premium price." Truthful testament or bitter fiction? Maybe some current Taix staffers could step in and offer to set the record straight. [The Glutster]
