2) If you want to help in another way, why not sponsor a striker? The brave act of going out on strike also comes with an economic cost. By making a donation, you can help to ensure that Walmart strikers receive a $50 grocery gift card.

So they are offering a $50 gift card for going on strike?

Re: Walmart Workers to Strike on Black Friday
Wally world has survived a few blows in the past,

Abundant cheap labor

On line sales with home delivery

new wally world grocery stores doing well = hype

most wally employes are part timers kids dedicated more to school than supporting a futile min wage job.

Black Friday will be just another pathetic day of hording cheap china goods for low income people.

black flash mobs & target now thats really what spooks wally world.

Re: Walmart Workers to Strike on Black Friday
THey are striking cause they dont like the pay that they agreed to when they took the job. My guess is they expected to be paid like an electrician wages without any effort or schooling on their part. TYPICAL.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 907170


Thanksgiving is not really a HOLY DAY..and black Friday is far from Holy. But you certainly can find some good deals on Black Friday to give for presents. I do the black Friday shopping..and No I'm not a low income person just a person who shops for deals for christmas presents. If you dont then thats your deal, but if you want great deals that is the day to shop. I like to give my family and friends nice gifts, not cheap crap.

Re: Walmart Workers to Strike on Black Friday
These Walmart workers need to learn from my 21 year old son. He was hired by Walmart this fall in his college town - asked to work up to 20 hours a week max. He is reliable, on time and a good kid. Then they started scheduling him 30 hours a week. When he went in to discuss this and ask for 20 hours a week he was told, "I used to work during college - you're just going to have to figure it out." He muttered under his breath, "I'll figure it out all right..." She wouldn't budge so my son was pro-active and looked for other jobs. Both places he applied at wanted to hire him and they paid more money. They treat their employees badly. Just look for something else. I worked retail for many years and even was a business owner for several years...get out of it. Retail is horrible now.

Re: Walmart Workers to Strike on Black Friday
I work for a bank. They don't want to hire any help, so we find as many ways to lie to our customers so they don't find out how short handed we are. They force us to work hours and hours of overtime. I'm working 50 hours a week at this point. It's total BS how they want to treat us because they don't want to shrink their bloated paychecks and give us a decent wage, a decent place to work, and enough employees to do the job RIGHT for the customers...who deserve the product they were SOLD.

Re: Walmart Workers to Strike on Black Friday
This is being organized by unions. Walmart is not a union company. This is the same dumb thinking that has brought you obama (vile deceiver). People should not put themselves at risk for illegal union activity. The unions want the dues and power that would come from unionizing Walmart, they could care less about thanksgiving or their employees.

I worked 2 black Fridays during the short time I was at Wal-Mart. We had to be on time & EVERYONE had to work that Friday or else they were fired.

They need to go back to closed on Thanksgiving. Give the workers time with their families.

Walmart has already found a "workaround" to any potential striking that may take place on Black Friday. They announced a couple days ago that their "Black Friday" sales now start on Thanksgiving Day at 8 PM. So much for families spending Thanksgiving together.

Can you imagine the $$$ Walmart will lose if they can't have their annual post thanksgiving bloodbath?

Don't see it happening.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10783814


Has to be cheaper than agreeing to full time employment for all of their stores. This will force them to provide health insurance or pay fine in 2013.

Can't see them striking for less than full time hours and health insurance. Even though the video only mentioned being treated with respect as main issue.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24425839


Most WM employees are full time and do get insurance. These folks are just stupid. If they are not full time, its because they either didnt want it, or just arent good employees. If they strike they will get fired. Some WM employees make some pretty good bank I know a deli worker who makes over 20 dollars an hr. They have jobs they should be thankful.

yea, but it is for the consumer to decide not to buy there. attempting to unionize it will only create more money for unions, drive the prices up for the chinese crap they sell and still the mom and pop stores will be out of business.

 Quoting: Laura Bow


Supporters can also sponsor a striking worker, who may be losing wages in order to strike, by donating grocery gift cards. The campaign has raised more than $13,500 worth of donations toward grocery gift cards since Oct. 15 -- a figure that doesn't include significant funds raised through mailed-in checks, Jamie Way, of the UFCW, told HuffPost.
