It seems like every week we report on cases involving waiters getting stiffed (Telepan’s being the most recent), but this is a new one. We’ve just received a media advisory inviting us to Goldman Sachs’ headquarters at 1 New York Plaza at 3 p.m. today to watch a rabbi bless workers striking at the company’s cafeteria.
“In the spirit of Passover, we are gathered today to support the Aramark cafeteria workers, struggling for economic liberation, justice and respect,” Dennis Diaz, UNITE HERE Local 100 Organizer. “The Aramark cafeteria workers at Goldman Sachs are oppressed by their employer who is not negotiating with them a good and fair contract with better living wages, securities and benefits. The Aramark Café workers at Bank of NY and CBS are on strike for the same reasons. These workers are serving some of the richest people on the planet while they are struggling to make ends meet.”
