While Macerich pulls in millions of dollars in profits, retail workers at the mall are struggling to make ends meet for themselves and for their families. These Queens workers are not alone.

The action took place on Father’s Day to tell Macerich that fathers, and all working families, deserve a living wage. For more information, visit www.queenscentermall.org.
