‘We the People: The Market Basket Effect’

A VIP Reel Progress Screening and Live Discussion

“We the People: The Market Basket Effect” traces the events that led 25,000 employees and 2 million customers across New England to stand behind embattled CEO Arthur T. Demoulas and wrest control of a multibillion dollar grocery empire from an activist board of directors led by Artie T.’s cousin, Arthur S. Demoulas.

A vivid and thorough portrayal of the most memorable labor protest in recent American history, “We the People” investigates a question at the heart of ongoing economic debate: can regular people really band together to alter the balance of power in major corporations, or is the case of Market Basket a fairytale victory?
