Dylan's Candy Bar
1011 3rd Ave
Dylan Lauren: We are not Oompa-Loompas!
This Halloween, Dylan’s Candy Bar workers remind Dylan Lauren that they are not Oompa-Loompas! They are organizing around three main demands:
1. Living Wage: Increase pay to $13.99 per hour, the price of 1 lb of bulk candy
2. Just Hours: More stable scheduling with guaranteed weekly hours for all associates
3. End Favoritism: Establish a clear and measurable path for promotions
So far, management’s response has not been sweet. Workers report being threatened, having hours cut, and being reassigned to less desirable work assignments just for speaking out for better working conditions! Workers say: We are not Oompa-Loompas! We’re worth more than candy!
Join us a for a fun and spook-tacular night, and don’t forget to wear a costume!
Is a pound of candy really worth more than a human being? Pay us a pound!
