Samantha Bryce returns to KBOO to talk with Joe Clement about the 7/29 picket at Voodoo Doughnuts they attended, organized under the banner of Doughnut Workers United. They both report back a good turnout, the sense of solidarity they had, and how receptive people were to the workers' message when turning away from the doughnut shop. They talk more about how Doughnut Workers United came to be, organizing around common issues in the workplace with the aid and on-going support of the Portland branch of the Industrial Workers of the World. Samantha also describes how the picket fit into a national day of action at Voodoo Doughnuts' locations across the country.
