    9/4 Strike

    Fast-food Workers Strike for $15 Wages

    Fast-food workers in Rochester, NY will walk off their jobs for the first time Thursday, joining a growing nationwide movement for $15 and the right to form a union without retaliation. Workers will strike at major national fast-food chains like McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s as part of a 150-city walkout that hit all corners of the country, from Charleston, SC, to Chicago, Ill. 

    Workers standing up and demanding fair wages and a union is the primary way that communities have beaten poverty in the past. As the 3rd poorest city in the nation, it is vital that we support this worker movement and make sure that they win their demands.

    Show your support! Join us Thursday!

    THE FAIR IS 2 DAYS--Friday Night and Saturday Morning!

    Metro Justice’s values are integral to our annual Alternative Fair. You can enjoy FAMILY HOLIDAY SHOPPING with a conscience at Metro Justice’s 33rd annual Alternative Fair, featuring thousands of unique fair trade, earth friendly, and locally produced goods that support a strong local economy and a just and sustainable world.

    This is holiday shopping at prices the whole family can afford, and for many families, it’s their #1 shopping destination each year.  Sale items include pottery, textiles, jewelry, fine art, toys & games, ornaments, and much more — all fair trade imports or hand crafted by local artists.

    There is a suggested donation of $3 for all those over age 12, and free child care is available for young children and babies. Bring the whole family for several hours, and enjoy the festive atmosphere as you shop with a conscience. Chances are you’ll see many friends, too!
