WORKERS TO STAGE WALK OUTS AT WALMART STORES ON BLACK FRIDAY [View all]


By Nadin Abbott

November 20, 2012 (San Diego)—Across the nation and in San Diego County, Walmart workers are poised to stage a walk out on Friday, traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year.

This Thanksgiving, Walmart workers at more than 1,000 locations are seeking a seat at the bargaining table.

“Unless Walmart takes immediate steps to improve basic working conditions, workers throughout the company's vast operations — from factories and warehouses to retail stores — will participate in a massive walkout on Friday, November 23," states an e-mail sent by Color of Change.

The reasons are many, but lifting workers out of poverty is a key factor. Wages reportedly averaging $8.81/hour add up to just $15,576/year for a full-time employee.
