November 28, 2014 (San Diego)— “This Black Friday, there will be a different kind of crowd at Walmart stores around the country,” says Cynthia Murray, a Walmart worker seeking to make change at the nation’s biggest retailer.
She explains, “Workers like me are going on strike, and we’re bringing our communities out to call for an end to Walmart’s unfair labor practices. As Walmart workers, we are sick of struggling to put food on the table while our hard work makes the country’s wealthiest family, the Waltons, even richer. But when we speak up for fairer treatment, we face threats and harassment from our managers. We’re striking to show Walmart and the Waltons that we can’t be silenced.”
