Tsu Yue Wang's Restaurants Always Seem to go Up in Flames!!
Ollies, next to Apple Store on West 67th Street.
I compiled some newspaper reports about Tsu Yue Wang who is very close to signing a lease with our landlord for the space Tani used to occupy at 2020 Broadway. Why is his restaurants have disastrous fires?? Well...we don't want a fire at 2020 Broadway. So, say NO now, while you can!!
HERE ARE JUST SOME BASIC THINGS I PICKED UP IN 5 MINUTES:
About Tsu Yue Wang: Cornfeld’s proposed tenant for 2020 Broadway (former Tani space for a food establishment)
Wang has been nicknamed “Flushing’s Sweatshop Kingpin” by previous employees who brought suit against him, won in court, only to be fired when he closed down the businesses named in the suit.
He built a multi-million dollar empire of restaurants, beauty salons, food wholesale, entertainment and real estate and apparently paid his employees only $1.50 an hour and required them to work ten-hour days without overtime, according to former employees.

If it was not clear that our lives were worth nothing to our landlord before this, then it should be pretty straightforward at this point.
PLEASE HELP US KEEP THIS CRIMINAL FROM RENTING THE SPACE FORMERLY KNOWN AS TANI @2020 BROADAY!!
