Why Chick-fil and its sister company, Eidl, are applying for unemployment in Germany
Posted On July 29, 2021
Chick-Fil-A applied for unemployment benefits in Germany on Wednesday, but they were rejected by the German labor ministry, according to the Associated Press.
The restaurant chain said that they are applying in the state of Brandenburg, which is not a member of the EU but is a member state of the eurozone.
That means that it would not qualify for unemployment assistance under German law.
The company said that it will apply in other parts of the country and that it expects to be successful.
The company has been hit hard by the restaurant chain’s rapid expansion, with sales declining and losses mounting.
The German government has been in talks with the company for more than a year to expand its operations, but it has been unsuccessful.
The chain has also been embroiled in controversy with a recent video that showed its owner, Dan Cathy, publicly denying that he is a homosexual.
