Easter and Passover shopping were even affected, with religious leaders weighing in.“The food that you’re buying is the product of oppressed labor and that’s not kosher,” Rabbi Barbara Penzner, of Temple Hillel B’nai Torah in Boston, told the Associated Press last week. “Especially during Passover, when we’re celebrating freedom from slavery, that’s particularly egregious.”The picket line also became a political magnet, drawing attention from 2020 presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Bernie Sanders, as well as potential candidate Joe Biden.“Today is a powerful victory,” UFCW said, “for the 31,000 hardworking men and women of Stop & Shop who courageously stood up to fight for what all New Englanders want—good jobs, affordable health care, a better wage, and to be treated right by the company they made a success.”last_img read more
