Things stirring up in Queens....

We've been meeting with tons of workers from the BJ's Queens locations, most workers are begining to bring us more and more unsatisfied workers from BJ's. We know most workers are still scared to post on the blog but leave us some comments on how you think our campaign is going or how you think we can improve it...We love hearing from everyone and are looking forward to hearing and seeing everyone at our next meeting in Queens!
