Plus, Chipotle made approximately $5.5 billion in 2019 alone according to Forbes. One million is only about 0.1% of a billion, and Chipotle certainly has many billions in the bank. That means violating labor laws in such a horrific way and taking advantage of young people barely cost them anything.
