WoodSpoon, a food delivery service offering home-cooked meals, opens in N.J.

Woodspoon enables customers to order food delivery from home chefs that includes everything from family meals to Michelin-star worthy creations.

Milwaukee rally calls for safer working conditions after teen’s death

Nearly 100 people gathered Wednesday outside the Burger King where 16-year-old Niesha Harris-Brazell was killed to demand safer working conditions in the fast-food industry.

Cooks and cashiers just like Harris-Brazell joined various elected officials and organizers of Fight for 15, a national campaign advocating for a $15 minimum wage, to demand more safety precautions for those in the industry.

“Our community can’t be a community with violence in the workplace,” said state Rep. David Bowen, a Democrat from Milwaukee.

Harris-Brazell was shot and killed Jan. 2 during a robbery at the Burger King, 5120 W. Capitol Drive. It’s unclear exactly how Harris-Brazell came to be shot, but it appears she may have been struck by gunfire either from the suspect or a coworker who opened fire with a gun he was barred from possessing.
