"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. Here in Portland our city recently and proudly divested from Walmart, and we will be continuing our annual tradition of large and lively Black Friday protest. This year we are especially excited that for the first time Walmart workers in Oregon will be walking off the job and joining us at our rally in Portland! Jobs with Justice, 15Now PDX and UFCW invite you to join us at the SE 82nd St. Walmart on Black Friday from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. to demand $15 and full-time hours for Walmart workers! There will be a rally with community members support as well as Walmart workers ready to strike!! What do we want? $15! When do we want it? NOW! http://www.facebook.com/events/836515136370460/
