Deli Sokolow workers deserve their wages

“The Committee represents 19 former employees, accounting for eighty per cent of the deli’s staff. Within a capitalist system, those of us who are women, queer, trans, and racialized already face systemic barriers to employment and bear the brunt of economic exploitation. Given that Deli Sokolow marketed itself as a progressive organization that cared about the livelihood of marginalized peoples, it is particularly notable and outrageous that the owners would take advantage of the workers’ lack of resources and precarious living conditions. We must stand in solidarity with the affected communities and call on the owners to accept their demands while continuing the work of organizing against capitalism as an exploitative system.”
