Wal-Mart unleashes terror campaign at Elwood Warehouse

When a warehouse in Elwood, IL violated Wal-Mart’s own ethics policies and denied workers the wages they have earned; instead of bringing justice to the situation Wal-Mart fired all 65 employees and let their contractor off scott-free. This occurred after the warehouse workers sued the contractor for wage theft.

Determined not to take it lying down, workers showed up Feb. 17 to fight back at a newly opened Walmart Express store here. And they brought with them a host of supporters from the public, including community, business, and political leaders.

I’d love to see these guys show up at major Wal-Mart stores all throughout the country. This can’t be the only instance of injustice against warehouse workers in the country either.
