Flaum Appetizing, a kosher food producer based in Brooklyn, owes an estimated $230,000 in overtime pay to their workers. There have even been hearings at the National Labor Relations Board, who sided with the workers, but Flaum is yet to pay.

The immigrant employees at Flaum worked hard for years to ensure the company’s success and growth. Yet when they asserted their fundamental right to be paid in accordance with the law for their hard work, the workers were fired en masse. The crime is all the more objectionable because their status as immigrants is being used against them to perpetuate their exploitation.

I, for one, am glad that the workers have started to humiliate (if it’s possible) Moshe Grunhut, owner of Flaum Appetizing, in front of his own home in his deeply religious community, with weekly protests. Obviously, the power of subtle suggestion is not the only thing this guy needs.
