Corrie is a 23 year old American expat partnering with her boyfriend Alberto, a 33 year old from Peru, in their first business venture: running an ice cream shop in Cusco.
“You cannot tell me that your business model relies on paying people below the poverty line.”
If this ice cream sandwich costs $1.50 or less, I will buy it, bring it outside & share it with Ben and Babygirl, and we will eat it together, taking turns, on a picnic table on the sunshiny grass, and everything will be okay.
Good news if you’re a Chipotle employee—or a person who eats at Chipotle. Starting July 1, the restaurant will be offering paid sick days to all of its employees, including entry-level team members.

No one in my family has ever bought a jar of pasta sauce. It’s just not our style. Like most Italian families around here, we’d go to the basement and grab a jar of our homemade sauce off the shelves. Growing up, I didn’t even know that not everyone did this.
