Video: Walmart Workers Walk Out

November 26, 2013 By Briana Johnson, Video Production Specialist

Three brave Walmart employees decided to walk out during their shift at Walmart. They feel they are not treated with the respect they deserve as Walmart employees. Today they decided to stand up and use their voices to make a change.

Though aware of the retaliation they might receive, these three workers know it was better to stand up for what is right rather than sit back and allow it to happen. They are asking for a better wage, a voice on the job and the respect that every minimum wage employee deserves.

    Fire them and hire people who want the jobs.

      If your present job paid you $8 per hour, would you continue to work there like these folks work at W?
