PB+J Breadline

October 1st 5-7pm
Union Square South

PB&J for a Retail Economy!

Join a Breadline for the Unemployed, Underemployed and Low-Wage Workers of our Great City of New York!

In these tough economic times, we will revisit the breadline as a tool for subsidizing low wage employment that pervades our service economy. Our Human Resource Department will be available to help you access your benefit of a free peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Rev. Billy and the Church of Life after Shopping will also be present to bless the line and those souls who need a raise or employment.

Presented by Art in Odd Places 2009: SIGN, an annual festival exploring the odd, ordinary and ingenious in the spectacle of daily life.

After you get your bread, you can join the party at the Art in Odd Places Festival opening at TheaterLab 137 14th Street btw 6th & 7th Aves

PB&J for a Retail Economy is a part of Retailing 14th Street, a collaboration of the Common Threads Art Collective and artist Stephanie Rothenberg with the support of the Retail Action Project. Retailing 14th Street intends to bring awareness to the experiences of 14th Street retail workers during the run of the Art In Odd Places Festival in October. PB&J for a Retail Economy was produced by Alicia Canary, Martin Munoz and Leah Danger, members of the Common Threads Art Collective.
