National Protest of Walmart: New Jersey Unions and Community Partners to Join in Secaucus, NJ to Demand Respect and Fair Wages at Walmart

Black_Friday_Walmart_Protest_1.jpgThis Black Friday, November 29, 2013, workers, union members, and community partners will convene outside of Walmart stores all around the nation to protest the company’s poverty wages, workers’ rights violations, ruthless greed, and shameful business practices that undermine worker safety in our New Jersey communities and around the globe.

New Jersey’s unions and community groups fought and won an historic campaign to raise New Jersey’s minimum wage earlier this month. To build on these efforts, we ask you to join us in solidarity on Black Friday at the Walmart in Secaucus. We will demand that Walmart workers are paid a fair wage and are not punished or intimidated for trying to express their voice on the job. Details on this upcoming action are below.
 
Date:
Friday, November 29, 2013
 
Time:
12:00 noon
 
Place:
Walmart Supercenter
400 Park Place
Secaucus, NJ 07094
 
It is a travesty that thousands of Walmart workers must struggle in poverty while the company turned a $15.7 billion profit last year and CEO Michael Duke made $20.7 million in 2012 – a 14% increase from the previous year.
 
It is time to send a clear message that these workers do not stand alone. An injury to one is an injury to all. Just as the fight for the minimum wage increase was about raising the standard of living for workers so too is the fight for worker justice at Walmart. We will not back down until justice is achieved. Thank you for your support and don’t forget to wear your union colors!
