Los Angeles Wal-Mart Workers Plan To Strike On Thursday

Wish them best of luck

--

“Hopefully it will make a dent in their production…” said Raymond Castillo, “and it gets their attention, that we’re not playing around.” Castillo and other Mira Loma workers struck in September, and voted Sunday to do it again on Thursday. According to Castillo, workers started organizing because of unsafe and unsanitary conditions: crooked ramps caused serious injuries; workers’ drinking water came from a hose. The organizing brought retaliation, which inspired a strike, which drew more punishment. “Since we’ve all been retaliated against,” said Castillo, “it was a pretty easy decision for all of us to go back on strike.”

1. The Walmart heirs are about as horrible as an American family can be.

They did nothing to earn their vast wealth. And they abuse the workers who help provide them with that wealth. They must be true Ayn Rand fans.

6. I live near the Walmart

In the Porter Ranch neighborhood of the valley and I refuse to even go inside that store. That store is the reason why the shopping center's traffic is so bad.
