The Working People Podcast talks to Jon, Meagan, Josh and Cortne, four former employees at No Evil Foods, a vegan plant-based meat producer in North Carolina that made headlines over the past year with its union-busting tactics. We talk about the failed unionization drive and the captive-audience meetings management held. And we discuss how companies like NEF use progressive” branding to mask their anti-union practices.
