Walmart Workers Stand Up on Black Friday in More than 1500 Locations

Today, workers from Walmart stores across the country joined with allies to call upon the company with $17 billion in annual profits to pay its full-time workers a minimum of $25,000 a year and for the company to stop punishing workers who stand up for their rights.  Rallies were held at more than 1,500 Walmart locations.  Working families in nine major cities planned civil disobedience as part of the protests, and arrests were made in numerous cities, including Alexandria, Va.,  Dallas, Tex.,  California, and Illinois.  Learn more about the action and why its important to stand with Walmart workers at
