Amato's Pizza Spirals into Shame: Introducing Madanto

This year has certainly been a shameful one for the once enjoyable Amato's pizza chain. First they delayed paying their employees their meagre wages, then they added insult to injury by not paying them at all and denying they needed to, then all over town locations faced protests by labour organizations and wronged workers. Soon after they were accepting "cash only" at most locations, and then... the food went downhill.

Now, they are hardly reborn with a replica sign that reads, "Madanto". Unlike the previous name which meant "Loved" in Italian, "Mandato" means crap all. Appropriate.
