Please join the The People Powered Assemblies, Occupy(Occu-Evolve OWS), The Labor Outreach Committee of Occupy Wall Street.. and the 99% as we take a stand for exploited Bed Bath and Beyond workers who average just above minimum wage while their CEO Steve Temares,received salary, stock, stock options and other compensation valued at $15.2 million, up about 16% over 2011. Much of the boost was due to a 20% raise, bringing his to salary $3.5 million. His stock options are valued at 33 million. Meanwhile almost nine in 10 warehouse workers have no health insurance, and earnings are woefully low: 70 percent take home less than $8.50 an hour.

Meanwhile the company took in 791.3 million in profits in 2012.

This pre-Black Friday Action takes place at 620 Avenue Of The Americas Lbby 1, New York, and is part of a deeper struggle for economic justice for the 99%!
