About two years ago, local supermarket chain, Market Basket, made national news when its workers and customers basically went on strike over the leadership of the business.
The strike and its outcome was filmed, and the documentary, We the People: The Market Basket Effect, is now being shown in select theaters around the country. Click here for the current listing of locations.
As soon as the DVD version becomes available, we will order it. In the meantime, two books in our collection may provide background to the story of Market Basket:
Demoulas, George A. Illegit: A Memoir of Family Intrigue, Wealth, and Cruel Indifference. [B DEM]
Korschun, Daniel. We are Market Basket: The Story of the Unlikely Grassroots Movement That Saved a Beloved Business. [381.456 KOR, also eBook]
