Support Striking Walmart Workers

Corporations have gone too far in squeezing workers for profits.  Walmart the richest company in the world, for years didn't even provide health insurance for its employees, expecting society to pay for its workers healthcare.  A full time customer service manager making 14,000 dollars a year?   Support the Walmart workers walkout, Boycott Walmart this holiday season.  If you don't plan on boycotting Walmart you might expect very long lines at the cash register and un-stocked shelves, might be a good idea to bring a camp chair.     
On Black Friday, and throughout the Holiday Season, we're standing up for an end to the retaliation against workers who speak out for what's right for our families, our communities, and our country. Will you show your support?
Across the country, Walmart employs 1.4 million people. We are not just the Associates that you see in stores. We are moms and dads, sons and daughters, and husbands and wives working hard to support our families. We have been speaking out for good jobs with decent pay, regular hours, affordable healthcare, and respect—but instead of working with us to make changes, Walmart has attempted to silence us and retaliate against us for speaking out.
Our jobs have been threatened, our hours cut, our schedules changed. Some of us have even been fired. We will not be silenced.

  1. The only power the electorate has anymore is in their pocket books. I have never set foot inside a Wal-Mart. Anyone unaware that they are a symbol of the race to the bottom and the end to America, is willfully ignorant, lazy and or selfish.
