News :: Labor
Upper Crust Targeted for Exploiting Workers
04 May 2011
Early on the morning of May Day, Boston anarchists smashed the windows on three Upper Crust Pizzerias. This chain was targeted because the owners of the chain have been making millions of dollars while exploiting their immigrant employees. This high end pizza chain has been caught:

-Underpaying workers for overtime,
-Paying Department of Labor ordered compensation for the owed backpay and then deducting it from the workers weekly paychecks,
- Importing and housing immigrants only to illegally exploit them for cheap labor

This action was done on the morning of May Day to both stand in solidarity with Upper Crust workers as well as celebrate the international day of worker and immigrant rights and struggles, which are still going on today.

This struggle is a result of the inherent oppression within the capitalist system and will not end until this system is dismantled and replaced.

Vandalizing is Criminal
05 May 2011
As a fellow restaurant owner and someone who has know the folks at the Upper Crust for years, I can honestly say that this is BS. You damn them if they do, and if they don't... If the workers want to work more than 40 hours, then the Upper Crust is wrong for accommodating them, and if they are not allowed to work more than 40 hours, then they are being discriminated against.
It seems that this "anarchist group" are nothing more than terrorists and thugs who should be arrested.
Let a business succeed and provide jobs in a tough economy - that's how you help the world.
