Protests by Walmart workers and their allies have been brewing across the country over the last few weeks. And the big action will be this Friday. Walmart warehouse workers are striking over working conditions, and retail workers are striking to stand up to intimidation and retribution.
While on strike, workers have no income, which is why we need your help.
Striking workers are demanding that Walmart show them the respect they deserve. Workers want to be able to report injuries on the job without fear of being written up. They want predictable schedules so they can plan for day care and other needs. And workers want their complaints taken seriously. In short, these workers want simple respect. And that shouldn't be too much to ask from the world's largest corporation.
There are many ways to effect progressive change in our country. These brave and underappreciated Walmart strikers are on the front lines of saving the middle class and opening up opportunity for all Americans, so show them your thanks today!
