On Thursday, May 22nd we demanded that the 19 workers from Kensington who painted St Ives Apartments in the northeast were paid their hard earned wages. They painted every room and closets on several units of a huge complex but when it came time to be paid for their work, they became victims of wage theft. Due to this, people were unable to pay their bills, keep their electric on, or even attend a friends funeral. In the end with everyone’s support we were able to win back the wages of all 19 workers! Thank you to all who supported us!
