In New York, over 1,400 essential workers at Hunts Point Produce Market — the largest wholesale produce market in the country — won a major victory this weekend after going on strike for a week demanding a $1-an-hour raise. Workers voted to end their strike Saturday after approving a new contract that includes a $1.85 wage increase over three years and ends out-of-pocket payments for family healthcare plans. We’ll have more on their victory later in the broadcast.
