Kellogg's removes its logo from Pop-Tarts boxes

On Friday, Kellogg’s confirmed Online rumors have it removed its name from Pop-Tarts boxes. The move comes amid a months-long strike involving about 1,400 workers across four grain plants, but Kellogg says the design decision is about “streamlined” design, not a last-ditch effort to get around a consumer boycott (hmm).

The strike centered in part on the company’s dual compensation system, in which workers hired after 2015 typically receive lower wages and benefits than workers hired for a longer term. The company said its veteran workers earn more than $35 an hour on average, while new workers earn nearly $22 an hour on average.

Earlier this week, Bernie Sanders, the independent US senator from Vermont, announced plans to hold a rally Friday on behalf of Kellogg workers in Battle Creek, Michigan, the site of the company’s headquarters and one of its troubled grain mills.

Don’t forget that in early December, when Kellogg announced a plan to hire permanent replacement workers, Redditors flooded the recruitment site with fake apps.
