This engaging documentary follows the staff of a New York pizza franchise as they attempt to unionize while fighting management abuses. A gripping and suspenseful plot becomes heart-warming in its depiction of workers uniting for a common cause. The directors Rachel Lears and Robin Blotnick display the struggle of the workers (many were undocumented immigrants) and the labor rights lawyers who aid them, and widen their perspective to consider economic injustice throughout the service industry.

Followed by a discussion on immigrant’s rights and advocating for a living wage.

Directed by Robin Blotnick & Rachel Lears / US / 2014
