Join members of the Industrial Workers of the World, the Insomnia Workers
Union, & Harvard's Student Labor Action Movement as we picket Insomnia
Cookies tonight in support of striking employees! Bakers at Insomnia make
just $9/hr, double as cashiers & are so busy they sometimes don't even get
legally-required breaks. Super-exploited "drivers" use their own bikes,
endure competitive pressure to make deliveries @ unsafe speeds and make
just $5/hr plus tips (meanwhile the company, with 30 locations, charges
$2.75 for each "jumbo deluxe" cookie).  At times "drivers" work until 3:15
a.m. without breaks! Do you support a union for the Insomnia Cookies
workers? Come to our picket and make your voice heard! We'll gather tonight
starting at 8 pm at 65 Mt Auburn Street Cambridge. The Facebook event is
here <https://www.facebook.com/events/1416262478601137/>.

AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL!

In August, four employees were terminated after going on strike to protest
their miserable pay and working conditions. Especially if you are unable to
attend our picket, please consider a donation to the Insomnia Workers Union
Strike Fund: https://www.wepay.com/donations/1952435343. The money goes
directly to support striking Insomnia workers.
