From greensboroiww.org


Last week, the Greensboro IWW achieved a swift and valuable win that illustrated the power of solidarity and direct action. A branch member had been unjustly fired from his job at New York Pizza on Tate Street in Greensboro, North Carolina. This fellow worker was owed more than $1100, including unpaid overtime and off-the-clock work, as well as money that was improperly deducted from his pay for rejected food and register shortages.
