Thank you so much for supporting Walmart workers and the #Fastfor15 this Black Friday!!!

Standing up together as Walmart workers and community, we showed that direct action and people standing side by side with Walmart workers can effectively change even the largest employer in the world. Walmart’s announcement to raise wages to $9 / hour and starting next February to $10 / hour put more money in the pockets of 500k Walmart associates.

Unfortunately though, the raises were not enough. Overnighters lost out on shift differential, and associates making above $9 / hour didn’t even see a raise! Everyday my coworkers and I are still struggling to put food on our tables and so our fight continues. This Black Friday we can ensure that no Walmart worker or their family goes hungry while working for the Walton heirs, 6 of the richest people in the world.

Thanks again for your support, we can't do this without you.
