NEW YORK — It may have been a washout due to heavy rain, but more than 20 protesters from the antisexism organization UltraViolet picketed Macy’s Herald Square Wednesday with a petition of 90,000 signatures demanding that Macy’s “stop lobbying against equal pay for women.”
Holding signs saying “Macy’s: Stop Blocking Equal Pay,” other activist organizations joined in, including the National Organization for Women and Restaurant Opportunities Centers United. By noon, UltraViolet — which severed Reebok’s sponsorship of rapper Rick Ross — had already placed more than 2,000 phone calls to Macy’s customer feedback line.
