We are retail workers. We deserve better pay, fair hours, paid family leave, and respect. Join our movement.
Rise Up Retail is a movement of retail workers fighting for better pay, fair hours, paid family leave, and respect in the retail industry. We join together to offer strength and support in addressing the challenges that arise in our stores and our companies everyday. Together, we can win.
“I want to change retail, I want to set a standard for companies and let them know they can not get away with treating us like numbers.”
— PILAR BARRAGAN, RISE UP RETAIL LEADER
Toys R Us Campaign
Toys R Us announced in March that it will be liquidating its entire U.S. operation and closing all stores. Over 33,000 workers will be losing their jobs without severance pay in the next several weeks while executives and private equity companies KKR & Bain Capital walk away with hundreds of millions. We're fighting back.
