_________________________________________________Dear Sonny Kim:I support workers at Golden Farm.Before the boycott, I spent about $______ per week atthe store.When you sign a fair contract with the workers I will comeback to shop at Golden Farm.Sincerely,Name: __________________________________99 Pickets & Occupy Kensington // 99pickets.org_________________________________________________
The boycott, requested by Golden Farm employees, has caused a 50% drop in sales on peak days. Boycotters want the owner to
- sign a fair union contract with the employees and include paid sick days,
- restore employees’ work hours that the owner cut illegally in retaliation for employees organizing, and
- reinstate employees who were fired in retaliation for organizing.
