Episode Summary

EDIT
Paper or Plastic?
AIRED:
Tamera gets a lesson in economics and employee relations when she and Tia take jobs from striking workers. Meanwhile, Lisa needs some quick basketball instruction. Lisa's boyfriend Terrence is the manager of a local grocery store. When several employees of the grocery store go on strike in hopes of getting higher wages, Terrence asks Tia and Tamera to come work for him. Tia, on the side of the striking workers, refuses to cross the picket line. However Tamera takes Terrence up on his offer. When Tia sees Tamera living it up on the wages from her new job, she abandons her principles and also begins working at the store. Tia and Tamera begin feeling exploited when they find out they are working for no benefits and half the money as the regular workers. They tell Terrence that they and the other replacement workers will go on strike unless they are better compensated. Their threat causes Terrence to reach an agreement with his regular workers, leaving Tia, Tamera and the rest of the replacement workers unemployed.moreless

    Tia and Tamera get jobs at Food Boy when the union workers go on strike. They are paid half and don't get the benefits. Tamera stands up for herself and the other workers. Their rebellion is what settles the strike. Terrence is happy, but has to let Tia and Tamera go. Lisa has a chance to get a truck and Ray wants her to win. He teaches her how to shoot a basketball. He teaches her and Roger and they both turn out really bad.
