Get Involved

99 Pickets, a group originally from Occupy Wall Street, seeks to help build a mass workers’ movement in New York City and beyond. We are workers, immigrants, artists, the unemployed, students and retirees: the 99%.

Get plugged into what’s happening with worker campaigns around the city at our monthly solidarity meetings, the second Thursday of each month, from 6-8pm. We provide English/Spanish interpretation, childcare, and our meeting spaces are wheelchair-accessible.

Or, come to one of dozens of actions (from a number of organizations) supporting workers fighting for a living wage, respect at the workplace, and against wage theft and intimidation. Check out our calendar, join our email list for info about upcoming actions, or sign up for emergency text alerts, which occasionally let people know when workers need our support and need it now! Simply text @pickets to the number 23559.

Solidarity Call-in to Liberato

Workers have been organizing at the famous Liberato restaurant in the Bronx for several months now. But the restaurant still refuses to pay even minimum wage to their workers, and they are harassing worker leaders by arbitrarily changing their duties and work schedules.

99 Pickets is calling a solidarity call-in campaign on Saturday 9/5 12-2pm, Sunday 9/6 12-2pm, Monday 9/7 12-2pm. More info here.
