The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year. Â It is Â called Black Friday, and it is becoming a 24-hour event, beginning Â soon after the pumpkin pie is served. Â It is its own holiday.Â But, whose holiday, and what are we celebrating?Â Across the nation, in unprecedented actions and with the courage of Â 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. Â Take action wherever you’ll be for Thanksgiving.Â It’s not a boycott — go ahead and shop — AND join an action.
