Frustrated in a new language Businesses
close for the
day to honor
The protest showed immigrants’
impact on the town.
By Meghana Srikrishna
Assistant City Editor
The Root Cellar closed at 2 p.m.
Thursday, six hours earlier than usual. It was
one of several businesses in the area with
workers participating in the Day Without
Across the United States, immigrants did
not attend school or work to demonstrate
just how important they are in their com-
munities. Many Chapel Hill restaurants and
businesses closed because they could not
operate without their immigrant staffers.
“We definitely heavily rely on them, espe-
cially in the kitchen,” said Root Cellar co-
owner Susan White. “It definitely hits busi-
ness, but we support them and we feel like
immigrants contribute to our economy and
business. We appreciate what they do.”
White said the Root Cellar hired a skele-
ton crew so that the cafe could open for part
of the day. While she does not usually come
in to work everyday, she came in and helped
in the kitchen herself Thursday.
She said 22 of the Root Cellar’s immigrant
employees participated in the strikes.
“They started talking about participating
and we started planning,” White said. “We’ve
got a great team of workers, immigrants who
have been here for years. We’re like family.”
