Sign this petition to support workers from BG’s Saloon, a now closed restaurant that used to be in Destiny Mall, fighting to reclaim stolen wages and two weeks of severance pay. They are also demanding that millionaire Bobby Genovese, the owner of BG Cowboy’s Saloon and BG Capital sit down with workers to address these issues and how to treat workers at his other establishments with dignity and respect going forward.

The past couple of months, many of you have written messages to Chobani urging them to meet with us to talk about our MILKED report. We are excited to report that a few weeks ago, on August. 18th, we met with representatives from Chobani and discussed our MILKED report which details the conditions that workers face on dairy farms. Worker-leaders shared powerful testimonies about the preventable deaths and injuries, wage theft, retaliation against workers for speaking out, and other pressing issues. This meeting is the beginning of what we hope is an on-going dialogue to address the systemic abuses and exploitation in the dairy industry. We thank you all for all of your support, whether it was sending messages, circulating the report, or attending the rally in front of Chobani in New York City. Thanks and we will continue to keep you all updated!
