Chicago-based Prime Staffing abruptly shut down Thursday. The company sent employees a notice about the closure, adding that employees would not be paid. The notice stated: “I regret to inform you that effective immediately, Prime Staffing is out of business. Our bank has decided to immediately close our line of credit that we relied on to fund the operations of this company….Outstanding checks will not be honored and all funds in our account are being applied to pay down the line of credit. We have no leverage to prevent this.” Protesters from Occupy Chicago will be at the Prime Staffing office Friday in support of the employees who now say they are owed money.
