Occupy these Actions and Assemblies

Friday, August 10th, 2pm
99 Pickets Wheels 4 Workers

Join 32BJ SEIU workers and their supporters for the RIDE FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM — a bike ride to protest real estate developers like T.F. Cornerstone who are denying their largely immigrant service workers the security, retirement, safety-training and advancement opportunities afforded to 55,000 building workers in NYC. For just $2/hour per worker more, Cornerstone could stop this destructive race to the bottom.
Meet us at the starting line for the send off! Or get on your bike and make the ride!
