$15 an Hour and Full-Time

November 19, 2014: Walmart workers are planning protests, sit-ins and strikes at stores across the country on Black Friday.

Protests against low-wages, lack of full-time jobs, inadequate and expensive healthcare, and disrespect from management will take place at 1,600 locations nationwide on the biggest shopping day of the year.

Walmart employs more than 1.4 million workers—who they term “associates”—making it the largest employer in the country. “Associates” make on average just $8.81 an hour.
