California held informational protests in six cities.  Many, many people 
took our flyers and promised not to shop at Goodwill.  In Oakland, we staged 
a protest outside of the main distribution center and training center.  I 
met with the General Manager who said they do pay minimum wages at that 
location and that they only use the name Goodwill but don't really have 
anything to do with Goodwill Industries International.  However, he would 
not put anything in writing.

It was a good day on the picket lines.
