On Valentine's Day, Laid-Off Workers Ask "Monster Cable, Where is the Love?"

On Wed., Feb. 14, dozens of community supporters and musicians joined with laid-off Monster Cable workers in a Valentine's Day boycott picket. Workers were supported by members of over10 organizations including: Young Workers United, St. Peter's Housing Committee, UFCW Rise Up, American Federation of Teachers Local 2121, San Francisco Labor Council, the SFDay Laborer Program and Womens Collective, POWER, Mujeres Unidas y Activas, Partnership for Immigrant Leadership and Action, the Raging Grannies; as well as local musicians and representatives from the SF Board of Supervisors.

Protesters passed out flyers and sweets, asking consumers and retailers to boycott Monster Cable products, and celebrated the passing of the Board of Supervisors resolution in support of Monster Cable products. Carrying giant hearts, they marched to the Apple store to deliver a Valentine’s Day message and continuing to bring their boycott message to consumers.
