The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year. It is called Black Friday, and it is becoming a 24-hour event, beginning soon after the pumpkin pie is served. It is its own holiday. But, whose holiday, and what are we celebrating? Across the nation, in unprecedented actions and with the courage of a very human David facing a corporate giant Goliath, Walmart workers are asking for fair wages, regular hours, a safe workplace.
Across the nation, we Stand with Walmart Workers. Take action wherever you’ll be for Thanksgiving. It’s not a boycott — go ahead and shop — AND join an action.
