For the first time in Walmart's 50-year history, workers are speaking out about endemic worker abuse and low wages. This Friday — Black Friday — workers across the country plan to strike to protest poor working conditions if Walmart refuses to come to the table to meet with workers who are demanding respect.
Many Walmart workers live below the poverty line, and will be risking a lot to take a stand against Walmart's deep-seated culture of wage and hour discrimination, retaliatory firings and attacks on basic dignity in the workplace.
Support this historic movement for workers' rights — check out the CAN Action Center's list of Black Friday strikes and stand with workers in your neighborhood.
