LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A lot of questions are still unanswered in regards to the sudden closing of Lynn's Paradise Café
The biggest question might be what is going to happen to the 85 workers who are now out of a job.
Jobs With Justice, the group contacted by the workers for what they claimed are unfair and illegal practices, is organizing two fundraisers.
The first is a benefit hosted by the Barret Bar on Saturday, January 19, at 8 p.m. All of the proceeds will be divided among the workers.
The second is an online fundraiser for those who can't make it out to Barret Bar. Flaco Aleman, with Jobs With Justice explained, "100 percent of those donations that go into that fund online will also be distributed among the 85 workers. We're also going to be reaching out to members of the community in terms of some really basic needs in terms of food and household necessities, whatever folks can put in for these workers which will, again, be distributed accordingly."
Jobs With Justice will be reaching out to the owner of Lynn's Paradise Café to ask them to match the money, dollar for dollar, that is raised from the two fundraisers.
