Brave Wal Mart Workers Stand Up

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

To live better … To be paid a living wage … To not have to depend on others … To not be retaliated against for speaking out for justice and respect

The group OUR Walmart, which stands for Organization United for Respect at Walmart, is enlisting a broad range of allies to publicize its Black Friday protest across the U.S. The group asserts that Wal-Mart pays poverty-level wages, assigns too few hours a week and retaliates against protesting employees. Wal-Mart is famous for busting all union organizing events. But the world’s largest corporation is increasingly bothered by the planned protests on the busiest shopping day of the year and filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board. The group OUR Walmart said it is not organizing a union drive, simply exercising individuals’ rights to protest. Wal-Mart contends picketing is illegal activity.
