GOT YOUR ATTENTION, didn’t we?
Well, it’s true for those federal employees who’ve been laid off during the government shutdown, as long as they’re in Marquette.
Starting tomorrow (Saturday), Babycakes and Huron Mountain Bakery will be offering free coffee and either a muffin or a donut if you’re one of those workers who hasn’t been able to pick up a paycheck recently.
For the last four weeks, we’ve heard about missed payments, cutbacks and anxiety from these 800,000 workers, many of whom continue to do their jobs even without a paycheck.
Now, they’ll be able to sit down over a steaming cup of coffee, with a donut or muffin in hand. Free of charge.
A community showing its sympathy and gratitude.
How long will the giveaway continue? “Until the shutdown ends,” says Joe Heck, the baker for both businesses, “or until we run out of donuts. And that’s not gonna happen.”
