BROOKLYN - Some Brooklyn residents are protesting against a local supermarket owner who they claim is taking advantage of workers.

They claim the owner of Nebraska Food Market and Master Food Supermarket is paying his workers less than minimum wage and requiring that they work 12-hour shifts. The protesters say they are also considering filing a lawsuit within the next month.

The manager of the stores, however, says he enjoys working with the owner. He says there is not a single worker that is involved in the protest or possible lawsuit.

Those protesting the owner say workers are not involved because they are afraid of losing their jobs.
