Walmart Workers Go On Strike Before Thanksgiving
Walmart has been taking a lot of heat about opening for Black Friday on Thanksgiving. Even the workers are now ready to strike, and they have.
According to Our Walmart, workers walked off the job at three Washington DC area stores. The strike is in response for Walmart to “end its illegal retaliation against workers calling for better wages and full-time work“.
Walmart worker Tiffany Beroid said, “I’m speaking out today because Walmart can afford to do better by its workers. We want to work full time, and earn above the poverty level. And we are taking action today because Walmart needs to publicly commit to ending illegal retaliation against workers and better wages.”
This strike will continue on Black Friday, which could be a huge PR nightmare for the mega giant.
