33,000 Toys R Us workers are about to lose their jobs as a result of Wall Street greed. Tens of thousands of families are facing a financial crisis. They are fighting back. And they need your help.
Join Toys R Us workers from all over the country standing together on Sunday June 3rd and Monday June 4th to demand justice in New Jersey and NYC. Wall Street owners – KKR and Bain Capital – bankrupted Toys R Us by saddling it with billions in debt and pocketed hundreds of millions for themselves.
We are fighting for severance pay for 33,000 Toys R Us workers and their families, and we are calling on Congress to hold Wall Street accountable. We need you – perhaps as a Toys R Us kid – to stand with Toys R Us workers in this fight.
Sunday, June 3rd @ 1 pm
