Our leathercrafting shop (we’re the ones with the sign on Highway 53 by Mohler) and tens of thousands of Etsy sellers globally have all temporarily closed their Etsy shops this week in “strike”.
The strike is to protest increased fees (up to 25% of each sale goes to Etsy) and unfair policies that ultimately raise prices on customers for the benefit of Wall Street.
Strike organizers are asking customers to:
– sign the petition being delivered to Etsy HQ: www.coworker.org/petitions/cancel-the-fee-increase-work-with-sellers-not-against-us
– boycott Etsy for the week of April 11-18
If you have an Etsy shop as a seller, please consider joining the strike effort: etsystrike.org
The strike is gaining remarkable momentum and attention. More info in our blog post and links to news articles — Wall Street Journal, NPR, Newsweek (we were interviewed!): blog.walnutstudiolo.com/2022/04/11/why-were-joining-the-etsy-strike/
