Walmart workers are going on strike this Black Friday
Here’s how you can support them
Something big is happening at Walmart. American workers at the largest retailer in the world are finally reaching their resistance point and walking off the job to protest low-wages, poor working conditions, a lack of respect on the job, and retaliation against them for their efforts to make change at Walmart.
Now just in time for the official beginning of the holiday shopping season, Black Friday, Walmart workers across the country – from warehouses to stores – will be going on strike.
Making the Black Friday action a success will need community support. Here’s what you can do to help:
- Take the Black Friday pledge not to shop at Walmart, AND
- Show your support for Walmart workers in person by finding a solidarity action near you.
- Sponsor a striker by making a donation to their strike fund.
