Store Clerks & Shoppers: Low Wages, No Bargain

The event, free and open to the public, will be held at Marymount Manhattan College, Regina Peruggi Room on 221 East 71 Street (between 2nd & 3rd Avenues)

Retail is among the few growing industries in our current economy.

What role can shoppers play in re-valuing the work of people employed on the front lines of our retail economy?
