Walmart Workers Go On Strike For First Time Ever (The Huffington Post)


The Huffington Post reports on a breakthrough of sorts: Walmart Workers Go On Strike For First Time Ever

While Walmart in the U.S. remains free of labor unions, the retailer's workers elsewhere in the world are largely unionized.

Foreign Walmart workers met with LA workers to discuss how to effectively organize and advocate for better working conditions... The unionized foreign workers were from Latin America, Africa, the U.K. and Canada.

Sad to realize that union busting has been so successful that U.S. workers need help from Latin American and African ones; but maybe this small strike against the Walmonster will be a turning point
