    Job creator fired by Board of Job Creators.

  2. Well, that's a shame.

    Aside from being a noted pro-marijuana activist, Zimmer has been known for treating his employees well -- good pay, benefits, promoting from within, etc.

    And no criminal background checks. Big believer in second chances.

    Of course, the copy editor in me has to ask: is the company that owns the stores spelled "Men's WAREHOUSE" even though the stores themselves are "Men's WEARHOUSE"? If true, that instance wouldn't be the first time: See "Wal-Mart Inc." and "Walmart."

    You can always file a SUIT.

    No. It's spelled wrong in the url of that link, which leads me to believe the first headline on the NPR site perhaps had it wrong, and then someone fixed it -- but the 'warehouse' in the url remains.
