Workers at the gourmet sandwich chain Jimmy John’s plan to picket today in south city over what they say is unfair treatment and poor pay.
They plan to walk off their jobs at the Soulard location in the 16-hundred block of South Broadway later this morning.
Workers say they will strike for a $15 per hour wage floor and to take a stand against unfair retaliation targeting workers who are sticking together to speak out for better jobs.
Nationally, workers say during the past several months, managers required workers to publicly hold signs stating that they were incapable of making sandwiches fast enough or getting customers through the drive-thru quickly.
Inspired by fast-food workers in New York City and Chicago who walked off their jobs last month.
