*** If anybody out there is in touch with the Latino workers who walked out and got fired, please reach out to me. We'd love to help support them as well! ***
On Wednesday, August 1 Indianapolis welder Antoine Dangerfield posted a soon-to-be viral video of a wildcat strike by Latino construction workers building a new UPS hub. For posting the clip, which has now received millions of views, Dangerfield was immediately and unjustly fired.
Working people across this country have taken inspiration from the bold workplace actions of the strikers and Antoine. The least we can do is show our support by pitching in funds to help while he searches for a new job.
All funds are going directly to Antoine. Please donate whatever you can, an injury to one is an injury to all!
