Walmart Moms Lead Strike in DC on Shareholder Meeting Day

Walmart workers have been striking across the country this week to protest Walmart's illegal retaliation against workers who have spoken up about inequality and gone on strike. Walmart workers have been calling on Walmart to raise wages to $25,000 a year. This week Walmart's new CEO will be convening his first annual shareholders' meeting. "Let's make sure that Walmart executives hear us all the way in Bentonville, Arkansas," say strike organizers. "Our families are going without because we're not getting the hours we need," said Zacola Simpson, a Walmart worker and single mother. "And when brave moms like Barbara Collins struck to end illegal retaliation and spoke out about the problems at our stores, Walmart fired her. It's wrong, it's illegal, and we cannot allow this to continue."

...a very good wage (livable even) and still garners excellent prices and quality.
Disclaimer, I haven't been in a Costco since '03 (but I've only been in 1 Wallmart (as a tourist[didn't buy anything]) and it was as expected.
Couldn't wait to get out of there.

So, it should be obvious (but it isn't) they're scum bags. So, what is it about American poor?
One thing I've learned here in Thailand is that poor people make poor choices; which goes a long way to explain American behavior...
People are the same everywhere, really...
