Victory for bakery worker
Morima Ortiz and others had been picketing Kenny’s Bakery in northern Manhattan for over a year. Ortiz worked there for eight years and says she experienced wage theft and verbal and physical abuse while being paid below the minimum wage. With the help of the Laundry Workers Center, Ortiz won her legal claim. Supporters celebrated her victory on April 13 in front of Liberato restaurant, whose workers are still fighting for their rights.
