Hope & Change Discussed
"We Are All Fast-Food Workers Now"
Change can happen on a local level! We all need to look at the labels in our clothes - really every purchase we make - and remember that we vote with our wallets. We were reminded about the importance of community last Wednesday evening, when Annelise Orleck talked about her new book "We Are All Fast-Food Workers Now": The Global Uprising Against Poverty Wages to a packed house at the Norwich Bookstore. These wonderful gatherings of friends and colleagues are one of the reasons we began our small independent business.
