The Industrial Workers of the World and former employees of Comet Cafe are calling on all Milwaukee restaurant workers to join a demonstration demanding fair treatment of former employees of Comet Cafe and all restaurant workers! Gather at Swing Park, 1737 N Water St, at 5pm on Saturday, August 22nd. We will be marching up Brady Street to a Restaurant owned by the Mojofuco restaurant group, the group owned by Scott Johnson, Leslie Montemurro, and Kristyn Eite.
Mojofuco owners fired the staff of Comet after they organized and presented demands to fix faulty kitchen equipment and maintain safe Covid-19 Pandemic practices. We are demanding severance payment for these workers, fired for standing up for themselves and left unemployed during a global pandemic. We are calling for all Milwaukee restaurant workers and supporters to join this demonstration, network, and begin the process of standing up for dignity and safety at all restaurants in town.
