Insomnia Cookies Forced to Compensate Fired Workers
"...Something told me to stand up for what I believe in. To me,
this victory was worth every bit of the struggle."
- Jonathan Peña, IWW
member and Insomnia Cookies Striker.

Four workers at Insomnia Cookies' Cambridge store went on strike on August
19, protesting poverty pay and wretched working conditions, and demanding
$15/hr, health benefits and a union at their workplace. The company
illegally fired all four. For the next six months strikers, IWW members,
allies, and student organizations at both Harvard and Boston University
held pickets, marches, rallies, forums, phone blitzes, and organized
boycotts, while workers continued organizing at both the Cambridge and
Boston locations. The union also pursued legal charges through the National
Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Minimum Wage Hikes
raiseupma.jpgReposted from Cradle of Liberty

During the 2014 State of the Union address, President Obama expressed his intent to sign an executive order that would raise the minimum wage for new federal contract workers to $10.10 an hour. Though some very vocal pundits and politicians were outraged by the president’s decision to bypass the legislative branch to enact a wage hike, the executive order he wrote is limited to new contracts starting in 2015 and does not apply to contract renewals unless there are significant changes to the terms of the contract, such as the number of employees or type of work involved. The budget for federal contracts shrinks every year, decreasing the number of new contracts with it. So President Obama’s executive order will actually have very little impact. But the brazenness of a unilateral action to give the lowest-wage earners working for the federal government a little bump called attention to two issues that have been on the minds and placards of many in the past few years: poverty and inequality.
