"Walmart Workers Promise Biggest Black Friday Strike Ever" While the Waltons are by far the richest family in America, many of the Walmart workers who helped to build that fortune are struggling just to get by. From underpaid and under-appreciated cashiers and stockers, to abused warehouse workers and the more than 1,000 dead garment workers of the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh, workers around the world have paid the ultimate price for Walmart’s low wages. Workers at Walmart are just looking for dignity, respect, and a fair shot. But the silver-spooned Walton family is robbing them of any chance at a decent living. Walmart workers in nearly 800 stores have joined calls for Walmart to increase wages to $15/hr and give them access to full-time hours. If Walmart does not respond then workers have vowed to walk out and take to the streets on Black Friday. In support of striking Walmart workers and their demand, we will meet at the Walmart on 82nd and Holgate at 7pm on Thanksgiving night to let our light shine with the message "$15 and Full-time." What do we want? $15! When do we want it? NOW! http://www.facebook.com/events/306305706239831/

Come on out Thursday, November 28th, and stand with the workers of Walmart against corporate greed and corruption. Once again this year they are opening early on Thanksgiving, pulling their workers away from their families to work for minimum/slave wage, just so the Waltons can make a profit. Walmart refuses to pay their workers a living wage. Each Walmart is responsible for about $900,000 in taxpayer funded government assistance each year to their employees. That's over 5 and half billion dollars a year nationally!! That's right, this greedy corporation that profits over $16 billion a year is squeezing you, the taxpayer, for every dollar they can so they can make billions more. Stop this corporate welfare!! Come out and demand Walmart pay their workers a living wage!! Also, come out the next day on Black Friday and join Jobs with Justice and OURWalmart for their rally: https://www.facebook.com/events/236112673214899/ http://www.facebook.com/events/234568566706157/
