A leftist coffee bar in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was closed down by its woke staff members due to the fact that the owners weren’t extremist enough. The left-wing in-fighting was documented by the popular Libs of TikTok account on Twitter.
“Mina’s World” was celebrated as a “safe space” for members of the LGBTQ community until workers began accusing the owners of wage theft and “gentrification.”
On July 1, the owners revealed that the store would close after weeks of debate.
“Mina’s World is closed,” the post declared. “We don’t have enough money to continue operating.”
In a video formerly published to Instagram, the co-owners of the store confessed their “complicity” in anti-black gentrification and stated that they were trying to find methods to hand down ownership of the shop to the leftist radical workers. The employees had actually attempted to raise sufficient cash through a GoFundMe account prior to the store shut down.For
The leftist workers of the queer-owned store had actually published their grievances in a statement on social media.
“Workers at Mina’s World have long been in a labor rights struggle with owners Kate and Sonam for well over a year. We are facing systemic employer opposition, manipulation, abuse of power, exploitation, anti-blackness, ableism, hostility and complete disregard for our livelihoods,” they claimed.
The list included:
- Anti-blackness in a multitude of forms and occasions
- Ableism in the form of inaccessibility
- Exploitation of labor and denial of promised wage increases
- Tokenization as way to appear safe by association
In spite of the owners excusing putting the neighborhood and their employees at risk through their anti-blackness and gentrification efforts, the store shut down and the structure is being cost $425,000.
The GoFundMe for the employees had actually raised a little over $11k of its objective of raising $200k.
