Story Published in April 207 about lawsuit on behalf of worker’s rights.

It’s fake brews.

Two employees of nightlife-rating app Bartrendr claim they were ordered to be pretend partygoers and post constantly in order to make the app seem popular.

The now-defunct app encouraged users to post comments on beers and bar scenes in real time.

The California bosses were so desperate to drum up business that they ordered workers to adopt “multiple pseudonyms or personas in order to give the application the appearance of more user interaction,” according to a lawsuit filed by Staci Spector, 47, and Lisa Garcia, 46.

They often worked more than 80 hours a week but were only paid $1,500 a month, they claim. Plaintiffs were fired in May 2015 after complaining, they charge in a wrongful-termination suit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.
