Walmart workers at numerous shops around the nation are on strike right now, protesting poor working circumstances and alleged retaliation for their attempts to organize.
The a single-day strike was expected to culminate in a mass rally outside a retailer in Pico Rivera, Calif., this afternoon.
OUR Walmart, a coalition of Walmart workers and other sympathizers, organized the protest.
According to Salon.com, Pico Rivera Wal-Mart employee Evelin Cruz said “I’m excited, I’m nervous, I am scared   But I feel the time has come, so they take notice that these associates are tired of all the issues in the shops, all the management retaliating against you.” Rivera, a division manager, stated her shop is chronically understaffed: “They count on the work to be accomplished, without obtaining the folks to do the job.”
