On January 26, 2018 I saw a post in Facebook about a protest taking place in Arby’s in Sunnyvale. Several workers accuse the management of the store of wage theft and sexual harassment.
When I was there, a large crowd of activists were there. I saw a few familiar faces and asked them how their holidays went. Because I am Filipino American, I always get a thrill when I see Filipino American activists participating in protests. There is a long and proud history of Filipino Americans fighting for labor rights and human rights.
Several of the speakers had suffered sexual harassment in the workplace themselves. They are determined to fight for the rights of all workers, which I deeply admire.
Here is a video of the protest.
