Embarrassing that the @nytimes is just credulously repeating Chipotle’s claim that they’re raising menu prices because of worker pay. 1/3 nytimes.com/2021/06/09/bus…
@nytimes What the @NYTimes should have mentioned is that Chipotle is currently running a $153.8 million stock buyback scheme to increase shareholder value. 2/3 seekingalpha.com/article/442143…
