Heat and Pressure Build Up at Car Wash


Above, City Councilmember Carlos Menchaca speaks to a March 4 rally in support of workers at Vegas Auto Spa in Park Slope. The carwasheros, who have voted to unionize, were locked out by the owner after suing him for $600,000 for failure to pay minimum wage and overtime. Menchaca and City Councilmember Brad Lander were among seven people arrested for blocking the street outside the car wash in an act of civil disobedience. The workers welcome supporters on their daily picket line, at 7th Ave. and 19th St. in Brooklyn. Visit the campaign’s facebook page to learn more information.
