From Warehouse Workers United’s pilgrimage to protest working conditions, to OUR Walmart members’ Black Friday Strikes, and to this week’s Global Day of Action, the world has seen and heard a lot from Walmart associates and former employees in the past few months. And they are just getting started.
Josh Eidelson, who has been covering the efforts of all those involved in the fight for better jobs at Walmart, has now written a great, comprehensive article for The Nation, detailing what has happened, and effect it is having in the industry.
Although Walmart denies retaliating against its workers, many associates who have spoken out have been threatened or punished. Yet, those involved in the movement continue to stand together, because the cause is worth it, and they know they are part of something that is already creating change and inspiring other workers around the world.
