boycott safeway: one day longer, one day stronger

today I protested with a couple hundred of my union brothers and sisters in front of the Pacific Stock Exchange. It was a great protest on message, good speakers, great weather, good audience.

We were protesting the lockout of 70,000 Safeway workers in Southern California. What's at stake is not just their health insurance, but eventually the health care of all union workers. Safeway has already lost enough money to pay for the insurance, and they are a profitable company. What gives.

We were their to highlight this fact to the investors, the current CEO behind the lockout, Steve Burd has just got to go.
