VIDEO: Fighting for Better Working Standards

June 12, 2013 By Steve D. Fletcher, Fellow and Director of Grassroots Strategy

Overnight cleaning workers, who ensure the regions' best known stores are in top shape for morning customers held a demonstration for better working conditions and wages and the right to organize into a union. Workers from 25 Twin Cities area stores joined the 48-hour strike. They're also attending today's Target shareholders meeting in Denver.  

Here are scenes from the picket line in downtown Minneapolis.

    Go to it workers!!  It’s about time the rights of workers are enhanced.  Heaven knows there are far too many corporate rights.  We need more worker rights.
