Members of Warehouse Workers for Justice
in Elwood, IL Walk Off the Job
On Sat Sept 15th in Elwood, IL, workers at a Walmart distribution center walked off the job. They are protesting illegal retaliation and inhumane working conditions. This walkout follows Thursday's filing of a federal lawsuit regarding violations by their employer of minimum wage and overtime laws.
Eric Skogland, striking warehouse worker:
We are on strike to protest violations of our rights. We are tired of retaliation and threats every time we speak up about unsafe working conditions and other abuses.For more on this latest strike:
