On Strike!

Toronto's Tourist Office of Spain Stages Demonstration

In the name of salary shame and inequality, Toronto-based employees of the Tourist Office of Spain took their strike to the streets yesterday (June 14) — staging a picket line by the entrance of an event put on by the Andalusia Tourist Board and the Tourist Office of Spain.
