Solidarity – Words of Support
seveneightfive stands in solidarity with our brothers and sisters–our seveneightfive community, who are requesting cost of living wage increases and security from 7-day / 12-hour work weeks. We believe everyone has a right to safe working conditions and opportunities for healthy work/life balances. We also believe in individual rights to speak up and the power of collective unity to make positive change.
To show our support, we set up a Local 218 Utility Fund with hope of receiving 545 donations of $47 or more each to pay every Local 218 member’s water bill for one month.
Unions are important because they help set the standards for education, skill levels, wages, working conditions, and quality of life for workers.

"My friends, it is solidarity of labor we want. We do not want to find fault with each other, but to solidify our forces and say to each other: We must be together; our masters are joined together and we must do the same thing."
Cheri Renfro's interview on the Working People podcast made me aware of Frito-Lay's greed and exploitation. Give 'em hell!!!
In solidarity with Frito Lay workers!
At 72, I'm a lifelong lover of Fritos and Lays Potato Chips, but NOT ONE CHIP will cross my lips during this strike. Good luck, all.
