‘Superstore’ Strike Is a Lesson in Humility

George Back

Superstore returned for a second season Thursday night, and the gang was still on strike from Cloud 9 in support of store manager Glenn. Glenn was fired after giving a new mom maternity leave, which required getting around corporate policy by suspending the mom with pay. This meant a lot to the employees.

Unfortunately the strike was not as fruitful as the employees had hoped, as the big box retailer opted to just bring in workers from another branch. But Cloud 9 did offer to hire everyone back, including Glenn, if he signed an apology letter.

While the workers wanted to continue striking, they realized that they were easily replaceable, so they returned to work and signed the letter.

Superstore airs Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m./7:00 p.m. CT on NBC.
