Walmart workers are mobilizing to take action on Black Friday in your area and they need you to support them directly, in the streets.

Even Ashton Kutcher gets it.

Can you join them and attend a direct action training? Companies throughout the world have followed Walmart’s example, creating low-pay, low-security jobs. We have all seen our friends, family and neighbors struggle as they are forced to take jobs they know can’t cover their bills. We’re all paying the price for the Walmart economy.

But there is hope for change. All around the country, Walmart workers are standing up. They have gone on strike in Dallas, Cincinatti, and Southern California to protest Walmart’s attempts to silence them by firing and disciplining those who stand up for their coworkers’ rights. They’re tired of looking their children in the eyes and having to explain why there’s no food in the cabinets while they work for one of the most profitable companies in the world.

Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year, they’ll be holding protests to call on Walmart pay a real wage of $25,000/yr for fulltime work and to end the retaliation against those who speak out.

Workers in YOUR CITY are planning to act. Making Change at Walmart is holding a quick course in how you can support them and mobilize for action. Can you attend a protest training this week to learn how you can get more involved?

If you’re interested in supporting Walmart workers as they let companies know that Walmart-style jobs aren’t good enough for our country, RSVP and get more information.

You workers have more power than you think.

You earn the profits for the Walton family and they know this and they can very easily raise your wages and share with you so that you can lead decent lives.

Solidarity with you and good luck in your actions.

Due to "court stacking" by a ce(R)tain political faction, it will very difficult for WallyWorld workers in Baltimore to support this.

They don't get paid enough money to do so.

Remember - Black Friday Boycotts start even earlier this year. Here is to hoping that it is the most dismal sales season ever.
