BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., will travel to Battle Creek on Friday to show support for striking Kellogg’s workers.
The former candidate for president will attend a rally with the striking workers at the Battle Creek Farmers Market.
“Kellogg’s workers made the company BILLIONS during a pandemic by working 12-hour shifts, some for more than 100 days in a row. But Kellogg’s is now choosing corporate greed over the workers they once called ‘heroes,'” Sanders said in a tweet.
About 1,400 workers at seven Kellogg’s cereal plans in Battle Creek, Pennsylvania, Nebraska and Tennessee have been striking since Oct. 5.
The rally is scheduled for 3 p.m.
