Did the Wayfair Walkout Make a Difference?



GUEST: Saira Rao, former congressional candidate and co-founder of In This Together Media, Race2Dinner and Healing from Hate. Her forthcoming memoir is called Broken News.

BACKGROUND: A massive walkout of workers with the online furniture retailer Wayfair made headlines last month. Under the banner of Wayfair Walkout, hundreds of employees marched to protest the company's contract with immigration authorities to provide beds and other furniture to detention centers.

But Wayfair is acting as though it has weathered the storm, announcing a Black Friday sale in July. Now, activists are discussing the possibility of a boycott.

Saira Rao has written about the responsibility of the South Asian American community to hold CEO accountable. Niraj Shah, Wayfair's co-founder is a first-generation Indian American.
