99 PKTS on the Golden Farms Picket Line
Where: Golden Farm, 329 Church Ave, Brooklyn NY 11218
99 Pickets and the OWS community are joining workers and Kensington residents on the Golden Farm picket line this Saturday from 5pm-7pm. We’re asking customers to not shop at Golden Farm until its owner agrees to negotiate with workers and pay their back wages. Last weekend, the picket successfully turned back over 700 customers!
If you can’t make it at the 99PKTS gathering at 5pm, sign up for a slot. Community members are picketing Mon-Fri 4pm-7pm & Sat/Sun 8am – 8pm.
Since its opening in the late nineties the store hasn’t paid minimum wage or overtime. That situation changed when workers filed a lawsuit on March 2011 to demand back-wages and basic benefits like sick days, paid vacation and a contract that guarantees job security. The owner Mr. Sonny Kim refuses to pay what he owes and to sign a contract that will give all workers basic benefits and continued protection on the job.
