Bashas' was founded by Najeeb and Najeeby's sons, Ike and Eddie Basha, Sr. The current CEO is Eddie's son, Eddie Basha, Jr. A truck system is an exploitative form of employment — or, more specifically, unfree labour — under which workers are: paid in a form of limited direct credit or tokens, which may only be used at a company store, owned by their employers, or; paid in unexchangeable goods and/or...
