Subject: 2 Days Until Black Friday at Walmart...
Thank you so much for supporting the Walmart strikers that will be taking action in just a couple of days. Something incredible is happening and you're part of it!
Over the last two weeks, we've seen the Walmart strikes spread across the country and even to the warehouses that move Walmart's goods. Black Friday could be the first set of “viral strikes” given its potential to spread.
I want to invite you to join community supporters and Walmart workers at a protest in FL. Find an event at a Walmart store near you on Black Friday.
For more than a year, Walmart workers from around the country have been coming together to speak out for change. These workers have called on the company to address their concerns around low wages, unaffordable benefits, under-staffing, erratic scheduling and above all else the lack of respect in the workplace.
When Walmart workers spoke out for change, Walmart illegally retaliated against them and has tried to silence these brave workers. We can't let Walmart silence them!
Will you stand with Walmart workers as they go on strike this Black Friday? Find a strike or solidarity event near you or adopt a store and host an event of your own. You can find events and materials here to get you started.If you can't make it to an event, be sure to be there virtually by sending a solidarity message to the workers
