Tuesday Talk: Frustrated with the Black Friday madness?
This week, hundreds of Minnesota retail workers will spend their Thanksgiving on the job, helping their big box bosses pad multimillion dollar bottom lines. These workers are already among Minnesota's lowest paid, taking home well below poverty wages in most cases. Instead of through up their hands, many workers who make the holidays happen are organizing, demanding better wages, working conditions and the right to join a union.
This morning, between 8 and 9:30, we're happy to welcome Cody Oesterreich from CTUL, an organization helping workers employed by cleaning companies that maintain Target stores. Minnesota 2020's Lee Egerstrom will also join the conversation.
What are your thoughts on the big box stores holiday tactics?
What wages and benefits do you think retail workers deserve?
