St. Patrick Boycotts!

If you hang around the picket line at Golden Farm long enough you’ll see and hear most anything…St. Patrick and his snakes showed up in Kensington today! Too bad he can’t drive Sonny, Sharon and Steve away from Golden Farm. You’re lucky St. Pat can’t go within five feet of your store Sonny! What? You don’t believe St. Patty was here today? Here’s proof!

Ruben was also there and took the time to explain why he supports the boycott:

 

The boycott of the store started on August 18. Today marks the 7th month monthiversary of the Golden Farm boycott. When will the boycott end? When Golden Farm owner Sonny Kim signs a contract that guarantees the workers the most basic benefits that all workers deserve: paid sick days, paid vacation, personal days, raises,and job security. Is that too much to ask?

So long as the workers who organized to file a lawsuit to recover stolen wages and unionize for respect and dignity remain in the store and ask the community for their support in their struggle we will remain firm outside of Golden Farm. Besides, if we made it through the last three months, picketing in the spring will be a piece of cake!

Why should we continue to boycott?

1. The workers want our support.

2. It is the right thing to do.

3. Everyone deserves paid sick days, vacation days, personal days, raises and job security.

4. To kinda quote George W. Bush, you are either with the workers who are fighting for justice, dignity and respect OR you are with the boss that stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from his employees and watched while one of his employees passed away because he did not have paid sick days. Which side are you on?

5. The wages and conditions of immigrant workers are the floor of our economy. Either our wages and conditions are going to go down to their level, or we are going to figure out ways to help low wage immigrant workers raise their wages and conditions up to our levels. [from “No one is Illegal: Fighting Racism and State Violence on the U.S – Mexico Border” pg. 119]

6. The boycott is effective, otherwise Sonny wouldn’t have sued for $3 million in losses and sat down to negotiate four times; and because neighbors are boycotting!

7. We refuse to lose and give Sonny the satisfaction of breaking the workers and our will.
