Some 50 grocery workers and their supporters held occupations at four Brooklyn, N.Y., grocery stores on May 18. The actions were organized by New York Communities for Change, with workers taking the lead. The protesters convened at a church, where an old school bus picked them up so they could travel together to the targeted groceries. As protesters occupied the stores with bilingual signs, immigrant leaders handed the bosses at each location a letter demanding decent pay and benefits on the job.
