From the Times Ledger:
An alliance of workers banded together last week in Flushing to protest what they contended were unfair and illegal working practices at some city businesses.
Gathering in front of Gwang Zhou restaurant at 136-59 37th Ave., where employees last week lodged a class-action lawsuit against the owners, dozens of Asian-American workers from across the city and Long Island held up signs blasting companies they said slighted them and chanted slogans including, “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!”
The protest marked the expansion of a campaign begun in earnest last month with a rally solely against Gwang Zhou.
That event garnered enough attention to increase energy and draw a larger crowd April 14, according to attendees like Song Deping, who said through a translator that he was underpaid and forced to work long hours at a nail salon in Carle Place, L.I.
A man who answered the phone at Gwang Zhou said its owners declined to comment on the suit or the protest.
