As mentioned in a few comments earlier this week on BHB, the New York Times has picked up on the plight of Mamodou “Mohammed” Doucoure, the popular Montague Street Key Food employee. On November 6, BHB broke the story of Doucoure’s dispute with store management which resulted in him being accused of sexual harassment and demoted to an overnight shift.
New York Times: Key Food Employee… : In late October, however, Mr. Doucoure, 38, was moved from his daytime job as an assistant manager to a nighttime shift cleaning and stocking shelves. He is still paid $26.75 per hour. But Mr. Doucoure’s move, which might ordinarily go unnoticed among nonemployees, has grown into a matter of concern and outrage among neighbors and frequent shoppers. Since the Brooklyn Heights Blog reported on Mr. Doucoure’s predicament early last month, neighbors have threatened to boycott the store; they have also refrained from picketing only at Mr. Doucoure’s request, said Bonnie Burke, a longtime customer.
