Real Change vendors are easier to spot these days thanks to a partnership with Granite Construction and the labor community. At the Dec. 6 truck unload, vendors grabbed high-quality vests with pockets as well as the new issue of the paper to sell.
Since they are neon green, or chartreuse as one of our dedicated Twitter followers recently pointed out, vendors will no longer blend in with the landscape.
Bringing the vests to our vendors is the result of the community stepping up to help vendors succeed.
Granite Construction provided the first 300 vests for free, while UFCW 21, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), IAM District 751, SEIU 775, UAW 4121 and Unite-HERE Local 8 joined on as sponsors.
The vests were well received by the vendors and are helping their customers spot them from blocks away.
Wait, there's more. Check out the full December 13 issue.
