Wendy’s boycott: major mobilization!

On November 18, 2019, over 500 farm workers and allies, including NFWM, marched in New York City to call on Wendy’s to join the Fair Food Program. From a visit by world-famous comic/actor/activist Amy Schumer, to a powerful march of farm workers and their supporters (despite a persistent evening rainstorm!), to a surprise boycott endorsement by presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Twitter, the CIW’s day-long action reverberated in the fabled streets of Manhattan and across the country to millions of supporters.
Wendy’s assurances that working conditions are fine in their greenhouse suppliers’ operations are not holding up against the hard evidence of harsh conditions faced by workers in greenhouses, not to mention the well-documented failures of the superficial auditing companies tasked with protecting workers from widespread labor and safety violations. Farm workers and consumers are not buying it.
