Protests by Walmart workers and their allies have been brewing across the country over the last few weeks. And the big action will be this Friday. Walmart warehouse workers are striking over working conditions, and retail workers are striking to stand up to intimidation and retribution.

While on strike, workers have no income, which is why we need your help.

Donate to help a striking Walmart employee today and show solidarity with workers nationwide.

Striking workers are demanding that Walmart show them the respect they deserve. Workers want to be able to report injuries on the job without fear of being written up. They want predictable schedules so they can plan for day care and other needs. And workers want their complaints taken seriously. In short, these workers want simple respect. And that shouldn't be too much to ask from the world's largest corporation.

Click here to donate today to help a striking Walmart worker. You can help support a worker for as little as $5 or $10 dollars.

There are many ways to effect progressive change in our country. These brave and underappreciated Walmart strikers are on the front lines of saving the middle class and opening up opportunity for all Americans, so show them your thanks today!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
