Protesters Target St. Cloud Temporary Staffing Firm Office (11/26/13) Mark Sommerhauser

Protesters gathered outside the office of The Work Connection, a temporary staffing firm in St. Paul, MN, to protest TWC’s practice of paying employees with pay cards, certain firings they believe were unfair, and the firm’s disrespectful treatment of workers, particularly Somali workers. Protesters called for GNP Co., which contracts TWC workers, to hire its workers directly.

Some protesters also called for a higher minimum wage, while others voiced the opinion that employers who use temporary staffing firms are creating an extra obstacle for low-wage workers seeking steady work. TWC is believed to be the most difficult St. Paul-area staffing firm to work for.
