Chicago Action Against ‘Traitor’ Joe’s!
- Stagnant, sub-poverty wages
- No right to overtime pay
- No right to organize
- No benefits whatsoever
- Sexual harassment
- In extreme cases, modern-day slavery
Traitor Joe’s has the opportunity to join 9 other corporate food retailers — including Whole Foods, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Sodexo, Aramark, Burger King and more — who are working with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to end sub-poverty wages and improve working conditions. The CIW is an internationally recognized human rights organization that fights for the rights of low wage workers in the fields of Florida.
Join us on Sunday, July 17th at 4pm, in front of the Traitor Joe’s on 667 W. Diversey to support farmworkers and to send Joe a strong message: “We expect more of you. Stop being a Traitor!”
Also, there is an Art Party scheduled for Thursday July 14th from 7:30-9:30pm at 3036 N Sawyer. Bring any art supplies you might have and join us for a night of creativity and preparation for Sunday! Feel free to bring music and snacks!! For questions about the art party email firstname.lastname@example.org
