Employees of sex-toy shop in Massachusetts are protesting what they call “unsafe” working conditions amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

On Saturday, Aug. 22, 1:30-4:30 p.m., Good Vibrations employees will picket outside the adult novelties and sexual enhancement store. 

On a list of pointed improvements, Good Vibrations of Brookline employees are asking for the removal of all floor models in the store. If a customer wants to see an item, an employee can get it for them on an as-needed basis. If this demand isn’t met, employees want to get “hazard” pay.

The protest is being organized by the SECSE, Solidarity With East Coset Sex Educators. 

Employees are demanding better protection for workers and customers from COVID-19, transparency, and properly staffed human resources department, among other things. They are also seeking promised raises.
