From Los Angeles to Illinois, striking warehouse workers and their supporters visited Walmart offices today. Walmart claims it holds its suppliers to the highest standards but these workers know better. Walmart has continually ignored the workers demands that Walmart hold it’s suppliers accountable. Warehouse workers in Southern California and Illinois decided to walk out on strike when employers refused to listen to their demands to end retaliation against workers who spoke out against the abuses taking place in the warehouses that supply Walmart – from unsafe work conditions, working in crippling heat to wage theft. These workers have had enough!
