Quiet sad they don't support him for making it to the final table. I geuss the boss doesn't like gamblers. Or is just really strict to his workers

The same in Holland. LIDL is squeezing their employees to make more profit.

Hard discounters always squeeze their employees, they must do it so they can maintain very low prices... but they forgot the marketing factor there lol
