Chicago Tortilla Plant Workers Escalate Protests Against El Milagro

HeadlineOct 01, 2021

In Chicago, workers at El Milagro tortilla plants led another protest Thursday against low pay, staff shortages and abusive working conditions, including intimidation and sexual harassment. The latest action comes after El Milagro management ignored workers’ demands to meet and discuss their grievances. At a press conference yesterday, the workers announced they have also filed a formal labor complaint against El Milagro. Last week workers walked off the job to denounce poor treatment.
