Sexually-harassed workers win strike vs. company that makes Advan shoes

Minimum wage earners already work very hard only to get paid lowly pay. But this one just makes anyone angry.

Workers at Bleustar Manufacturing & Marketing Corp., the company making Advan shoes (formerly Rubberworld, which makes Grosbee and Kaypee) also had to contend with a boss who flashes his “thing” or who fondles them, among other despicable acts of sexual harassment.

The strike resulted in the reinstatement of illegally-dismissed workers and in the formation of a committee to investigate the lurid acts of company owner Jimmy Ong.
