The same guy owns all of these restaurants. Looks like they are just picking on one guy.

No wonder Chef Wangs closed down...

Mr. Wang is not the only restaurant owner in town to use these types of employment agencies. I've seen the big white vans in front of Daily Buffet on Old Fort Parkway.

And before we attack just restaurants, think about who puts the bricks on all these new homes being built...

This investigation started with Employment agencies, I think I read that somewhere. They solicit business owners with cheap labor.

Nice job MPD! However, it would seem this is just the tip of the iceberg, so keep up the good work!
