Strike at Boston dispensary Ascend

Strike occurs at Ascend’s Boston dispensary

On Wednesday afternoon a group of individuals stood in-front of the Ascend recreational cannabis dispensary located steps away from Boston’s TD Garden to protest the company. According to a video posted to Instagram from Erica Ricky Blaze, one individual helping to hold a sign that said “Shame on Ascend. Stop exploiting your workers” claimed that the company is stealing tips from employees and not allowing for breaks to be taken during shifts. Ascend was one of the first adult-use cannabis dispensaries to open in the City of Boston, with a second location in Newton, and a newly opened store in New Bedford.
