IWW Denied Access to Mall of America by Riot Police, 8/31/08: Video
by dave id
Starbucks workers at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, unionized with the Industrial Workers of the World about a month ago. One worker, Erik Forman, was wrongly fired due to his union organizing. With pressure from the IWW, Starbucks reinstated him and he was set to return to the job today. Riot police at the Mall of America turned back the IWW, but Erik was still able to make it to the job. Jake Bell (pictured below) was interviewed about the day's events and the future plans of the local IWW.
