Scoop NYC Subversive Coupon!

Check out this latest subversive coupon by Retail Action Project member, Leah Danger, an artist and recovering retail worker.

Leah made this coupon in solidarity with Scoop NYC workers who sued high-end retailer Scoop NYC for over $500,000 in unpaid overtime wages in July 2009. 7 of these workers, all hailing from West Africa, are also suing Scoop NYC for citizenship status discrimination. They were illegally fired when Scoop NYC accused them of being undocumented, in spite of the fact that they all have legal work authorization. The workers found help at the Retail Action Project who helped them file the lawsuit and get media attention in FOX News, NY1 and Crains NY. Support Scoop NYC workers! Don't shop at Scoop NYC!

Get your own Scoop NYC subversive coupon, support the Mannequin Resistance, and see Scoop NYC retail worker video testimonials October 17th 4-7pm! Meet in front of Scoop NYC at 430 West 14th Street NY, NY.
