  • Holton Meats employees go on strike, picket around the clock

    Union workers at the Holten Meats facility in Sauget, IL in southern Illinois near St Louis, MO went on strike Saturday.

Employees who work the Saturday shift for regular pay want Saturdays to be overtime, instead of receiving a weekday off as it's harder and more expensive to find childcare on Saturdays.
