As WalMart Refuses a Livable Wage, 11/28 Black Friday Protests Loom
The Walton family members who own the WalMart shopping chain are among the richest people in America. They got rich the dirty way — by having WalMart treat overseas sweatshop production workers like dirt and refuse to pay a living wage to its workers, who it strings along with part-time work so it can avoid offering benefits. Cheap, cheap, cheap. Mean, mean, mean. People come last at WalMart.
If you think people should come first at WalMart, if you are sick of exploitation, if you think people should be paid a wage they can live on for a day’s work, consider joining the November 28 Black Friday protests outside WalMart stores across the country. Protesters will call shoppers’ attention to the horrible working conditions under WalMart and call WalMart to the carpet on the largest shopping day of the year. It will take bodies to get WalMart to budge. Will you add your body?
