Black Friday ~ A Day for Workers, Prayers and Community


I am supporting all workers and teaching my children lessons in many subjects including faith. This will be put into direct action on Black Friday at a local Walmart. Did you know that in various parts of the country workers there have been on strike? Regardless of what the media says this is not an easy decision for workers. They have bills, families and obligations just like the rest of us. That is why they choose this road, Walmart refuses to pay them a living wage and allow them to gather, organize and work for change.

Did you know that Walmart treats workers around the world better than here in its home country?

After decades of such egalitarian arrangements, employer norms also tend to be more worker-friendly. In unionized supermarkets in the U.S., Bride says, management generally posts its workers’ schedules for the following week on Fridays—a little late for workers to do much advance planning. In the Netherlands, schedules are posted a full three weeks in advance. When Bride asked a store manager why, the manager replied, “It’s only fair.”

 

How do we let our brothers and sisters work where we buy but they are not treated with respect due to them. Does Walmart, or any business for that matter, make their huge profits without the help of the employees? We must stand with them so that when it is our turn they will stand with us. GO here to find out the closest action near you, yes it will make a difference.

It will build a community where one has been broken and it will teach others that we care. Put our morals into action because just talking about them does nothing, it’s just talk.
