Workers at Bliss Raw Cafe in Dallas striking on Saturday for alleged non-payment
Also not happy with what they say are non-raw, non-vegan, anti-health food policies.
From the in-basket:
Last Minute Rally For Saturday 3/20.
We're getting together as a community to support the past and current workers of Bliss "Raw" Cafe. Bliss Cafe workers are striking saturday 3/20 to challenge the (non-raw, non-vegan, anti-health food) owner Delia Pissaro AKA Dee who refuses to pay workers. many workers of Bliss Cafe whose hearts are in the right place get totally taken advantage of. often over worked, verbly abused, lies of delay of pay to often get fired and owed large amounts of money (i'm personally owed $2500) THE CURRENT WORKERS CAN'T TAKE ANOTHER DAY OF WORK WITHOUT PAY!
her website says organic and raw which isn't true. She buys GMO corn, produce sprayed with chemicals and has used artificial ingredients. this is a consumer rights issue! a customer with cancer came in and complained that they were misled into thinking they were eating clean food, Dees response was "fuck them"! Dee runs hot dog carts and insults vegetarians with her stories of being a butcher. she complains of health minded people as "not being in the real world".
with her deep level of disrespect for her employees, of her community/customers and our environment we are moved to take action! come out with us and the local media to peacefully shine the light on what has been going under the radar. let's hold Bliss Cafe accountable.
if you choose to hold a sign here are ideas:
ORGANIC, THINK AGAIN
BLISS USES GMO CORN
POSIONS OUR FAMILIES
DOES NOT PAY WORKERS
UNFAIR, WORKERS UNPAID
meet at the PARK LN STATION (park/greenville) at 10am, we'll walk over to BLISS around 10:15am TOGETHER!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
forward this please!
