Long Lines at Jollibee Singapore Opening, Despite Boycott

MANILA–Long lines greeted popular fast food chain Jollibee's branch opening  in Singapore on Tuesday despite the threat of boycott by some Singaporeans who assailed the restaurant’s alleged preference for Filipino workers, reports ABS-CBN News. Jollibee’s newest branch is located on the 6th floor of Lucky Plaza along Orchard Road in Singapore. But while the opening seemed successful, a campaign to boycott the restaurant was already online in the past few weeks.  The issue started when Jollibee Singapore posted a message on its Facebook wall urging all “Jollibee fans” looking for careers at Jollibee Singapore to send their resumes. But there was no mention on Jollibee Singapore's Facebook page that it was only hiring Filipinos for its store.
