Stand Up For Restaurant Workers’ Rights
Restaurant workers and members of ROC-Michigan are organizing and have filed a federal lawsuit against a local restaurant claiming they are owed over $125,000 in stolen wages as well as violations for discrimination and illegal retaliation. Since January, the restaurant workers and their supporters have been holding weekly pickets outside the restaurant, which have received local and national press attention.
During the U.S. Social Forum, come stand with a multiracial group of immigrant and non-immigrant restaurant workers demanding just treatment on the job!
We’ll be taking action Thursday 6/24 to defend workers’ rights. In order to participate in this action, please come to rehearsal in the Creativity Lab Action Convergence Center in the Cobo Hall Michigan Room from 6-10pm Wednesday night, 6/23, then meet at Cobo Hall at 5:30pm on Thursday, 6/24.
