Shaw's workers march on:

Three dozen Shaw's workers began the second leg of their 5-day, 60-mile journey yesterday at the Heritage Park in Lawrence, Mass., where the first day of the march from Methuen ended this past Sunday.


Throughout the 19-mile march from Lawrence to Reading, workers enjoyed broad support from passing motorists, as well as cheers from residents of communities along the route, many of whom put the "Don't shop Shaw's" yard signs on their lawn.


The third day of the March began this morning in Reading at 8:00 a.m. On the way to Medford today, marchers plan to stop at 12 noon at the Shaw’s Supermarket located at 99 Main Street in Stoneham for a rally and protest.
