Black Friday Protest

Join Hartford Rising! on Friday for a Black Friday Protest

It’s been 10 years since the Walmart has opened on the publicly owned land where the Charter Oak housing project once stood. Let’s fight for $15 and a union!

Over the years, we showed that direct action and people standing side by side with Walmart workers can effectively change even the largest employer in the world. Walmart’s announcement to raise wages to $9 / hour and starting next February to $10 / hour put more money in the pockets of 500,000 Walmart workers.

The raises were not enough. Overnighters lost out on shift differential, and workers making above $9/hour didn’t even see a raise! This Black Friday we can ensure that no Walmart worker or their family goes hungry while working for the Walton heirs, 6 of the richest people in the world. We need $15 and a union!

Thank you so much for supporting Walmart workers and the #Fastfor15 this Black Friday!
