Stop Hershey's Exploitation of Student Guestworkers at its PA Factory!

8/17/2011 -- Today, hundreds of student guestworkers from around the world were joined by unemployed American workers and labor leaders in a factory sit-in at the Hershey Chocolate Company packing plant in Pennsylvania. The students paid $3,000-6,000 each to come to America this summer for what they thought would be a cultural exchange program. Instead, they found themselves packing chocolates at the Hershey's plant in deeply exploitative conditions. Their demands: end the exploitation of student workers at the Hershey's plant, and make these jobs living wage jobs for local workers. Watch their video.
