Racial tension, class warfare, physical assault, deconstructed denim Bermuda shorts. Target has become center stage of the American labor movement's latest drama.

Earlier this month, 21-year-old Tashawna Green was fired from her job at the big-box store in Valley Stream, Long Island. According to Target, Green was dismissed because "she acted in an overly hostile, disruptive manner that is inconsistent with Target's policies." According to Green, she was let go for being pro-union.
