Take Action: Support Striking Walmart Workers on “Ride for Respect”
This week, brave Walmart workers from coast to coast are joining together in what’s shaping up to be the most aggressive strike against Walmart in history. Striking Walmart workers and their supporters from southern California and all across the country just embarked on the “Ride for Respect” caravan to Bentonville, Arkansas when the Walmart shareholders will be holding their annual executive meeting on June 7th, and they’re stopping off to protest at Walmart stores along the way (keep up with the “Ride for Respect” on Facebook, and join the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #walmartstrikers).
Now is the time to let the strikers know you stand with them. You can support the workers and make impact the shareholders meeting by signing the online petition to Walmart CEO Mike Duke.
