Kellogg's Strike Support Stickers
You’re probably aware of the current Kellogg’s Strike. If not, here’s the short version from an Eater.com article.
More than 1,400 Kellogg Co. cereal plant workers in Michigan, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee have been on strike since the beginning of October, protesting for improved working conditions including a better wage scale and better benefits for new workers. The strike comes during a pandemic that has forced many frontline workers to repeatedly choose between their jobs and their health, a reality that’s resulted in a growing public awareness of labor issues and the true cost of whatever-it-takes capitalism.

You could certainly order a roll of these stickers from a great indie company like Sticker Giant. If you did, they’re designed for a 2”x 1” rectangle label. And, you might be thinking to yourself: “Hey, self, I could print a bunch of these stickers and put them on products at my local supermarket to remind everyone not to support Kellogg’s until they meet worker demands.” And, that’s true. You could! And, here’s a reminder of which products Kellogg’s makes:
Of course, I would advise you to follow any laws that exist where you live, but there’s also no way I could stop you from sneaking these stickers onto products at your local grocery store. If you did such a thing, I’d love for you to post a comment with a picture so I could politely admonish you. Also, if you did and got stopped by any grocery store workers, please don’t give them a hard time – they’re just doing their job.
