Family feud could lead to Market Basket CEO's ouster

(Continued)

Employees at the Central Plaza Market Basket in Haverhill yesterday stood in front of posters claiming Arthur T. Demoulas’ ouster will lead to higher food prices and fewer job opportunities.

Another long-tenured employee, meat manager Steve Burke, 60, said Arthur T. Demoulas has “kept his nose to the grindstone” even after becoming a successful businessman.

“The man has made a lot of money,” said Burke, a Market Basket employee for 41 years. “But he’s done a lot for the people along the way.”

Kristi Cunningham, a Haverhill resident and mother of three, was eager to sign the petition yesterday.

“I don’t want them to raise prices,” said Cunningham. “I pay enough to feed my family.”
