As of this afternoon workers at top city are going back to work. The boss agreed to pay min wage and overtime and open to further discussions.

Thanks to everyone for the support; we know that a lot of people called and that scared the s@$+! out of the boss. The workers at Top City want to send a strong message of solidarity back to everyone who took action.

More to come - no picket tomorrow morning!

Workers at Top City refused to go to work until the boss agreed to obey the law. For too long workers have been working 72 hour weeks with no overtime, wages less than minimum wage, no benefits and no respect.
