They are on the picket lines for Thanksgiving

While there are millions of people enjoying their turkey dinners–there are a bunch of people spending the time picketing this Thanksgiving weekend.

Seven hundred workers who make adhesives and sealants for Momentive Performance Materials will spend Thanksgiving on the picket lines.

They’ve been on strike since November 2, fighting the company’s efforts to hike health care costs, eliminate retiree health care, undermine vacation time, and reduce 401(k) payments for younger workers, who had their pension frozen in the last contract.
