Culver's Owner Pays Out-of-Work Employees From His Own Pocket
Amidst a ground swell of employers who grumble about health care costs and minimum wage hikes, one restaurant business owner put his money where his mouth was in terms of employee "benefits."

Here's the TV report we found online. No political sniping here. Just a feel good story that we can all use, every once in a while. http://bit.ly/1qKPOLo
