The Grilled Cheese shuts down as allegations run wild

Popular Kensington Market sandwich spot The Grilled Cheese has temporarily shut down in the wake of a Global News story alleging shady business practices and unpaid wages.

Global news reports that four employees have contacted them in the last 48 hours alleging that The Grilled Cheese owner Robbie Yuill had a habit of paying them in cash and sent intimidating text messages.

This followed a broadcast report on Saturday where one employee, Kris Kadas, told Global he's owed $850 in wages. Kadas also wrote about his experience on Reddit - a thread that has already garnered more than 270 comments.

The Ontario Ministry of Labour has informed Global News that they're investigating the situation.
