Well, the Cellar is part of a small, possibly growing?, empire...

Maybe the ownership wants to go in another direction to maybe there is new management altogether. Who knows. A couple months back I accepted a job offer at a restaurant on St. Maarten but there was red tape would not allow foreign workers as they were trying to get a charter/treaty passed. It seems looking around that this happens a lot, looking off-island for people.

My apologies...it wasn't my intention to stir up doubt in the community. My husband and I had already decided to move to USVI and we were actively looking for work there. I found the job posting on the Virgin Islands Craigslist, where I'm sure anyone on the USVI could have also found it. I sincerely believe that this employer was just looking for the best suited people for the position...people who could help the restaurant become a better place for it's customers. We are very much looking forward to our move and to meeting all of the lovely people who live in St Thomas. East Ender, my husband read you're suggestions, thank you! I hope that the improvements are to your liking and we get to meet you as well!

I think that you will find your 'it's a small world' comments are even more applicable in the 'it's a small island' context of community.
The 'loyalty" program of the 'Empire' doesn't sound like it applies to any of the hardworking, promotable workers toiling on " Maggies Farm" and the other restaurants they operate.

Exit Zero, I am well aware of what it is like to live in a small community. I lived in the Village of Oak Creek just outside of Sedona and the population there was all of about 2500 people.....kind of just a blip on your "small" island. I also understand your point. The jobs should definitely go to people on the island who are not only qualified for them, but also APPLIED for them. I was very happy living in that very small community and it broke my heart to leave there. I am absolutely certain that island life is going to suit me to a tee. Thanks for your imput, though.
