Cleaning workers aim labor action at downtown Minneapolis Target store

Share story

Retail cleaning workers who clean Targets and other stores planned to declare a strike and to picket at the downtown Minneapolis store this morning. Many of the workers are immigrants and are not officially unionized.

We talk with one of the organizers about the goals of the strike, and with a Macalester labor scholar about how this story fits with the history of the labor movement.
