Earlier this year, Sarah Maslin Nir’s New York Times exposé on working conditions in nail salons ignited a firestorm of outrage and debate over industry practices. Sukjong Hong, the creator of this graphic journalism piece, counts many salon workers among members of her community. Having taken part in a salon worker’s wage recovery campaign, Hong provides a look at ongoing organizing efforts for better conditions, as well as nail workers’ responses to the Times report. No actual names of nail salons were used in this piece.
