Operations went smoothly Thursday at Mt. Olive Pickle, but a number of workers were absent on a day activists nationwide promoted as a general strike for migrant workers.
While social media posts suggested administrative staff were called onto the canning line to fill in for missing workers, Mt. Olive spokeswoman Lynn Williams said Thursday evening she didn’t know if those accounts were true.
“I really don’t know if that’s true or not actually,” she said. “I have no idea. I haven’t seen the social media post either. We did see a dip in attendance today, but we made some adjustments.”
