Show solidarity with striking Walmart workers

The email below is from Barbara Gertz, who walked off her job at Walmart in Aurora, Colorado. She is standing up for herself, her co-workers and Walmart associates across the country by fighting for a fair wage, access to full-time hours, and the ability to speak up for their rights. She started a petition on, where activists can launch their own campaigns for progressive change. We urge you to support Barbara and her fellow striking Walmart workers by signing her petition. This fight and others like it are an important part of the fight for economic justice, and CREDO is proud to stand in solidarity with workers who are organizing to get a living wage and the dignity in their workplace they deserve.

Stand with striking Walmart workers

Dear 5849376,

I started my own campaign on CREDO's new site that allows activists to start their own petitions.

My petition, which is to Walmart CEO Mike Duke, says the following:

I am standing with striking workers and calling on you to publicly commit to raise wages and increase access to full-time hours for Walmart workers. Walmart workers should have access to full-time schedules that pay them at least $25,000 per year.

Walmart can do better. You can start to solve these problems by treating us -- your "associates" -- with respect, paying us a living wage, and providing us with the hours we need and the staffing levels you require, and not silencing us when we speak up for our rights.

We are taking our message directly to Walmart's headquarters for the annual shareholders' meeting on June 7th to collectively make our voices heard.

Walmart is among the most profitable companies in the U.S. and is owned by the Walton family, the richest family in America, yet many associates at Walmart must rely on food stamps and even go hungry because of low wages and a lack of full-time hours.

So now some of us are speaking out and taking our message to Bentonville by going on strike, and standing up to Walmart's retaliation against us when we speak out.

Add your name so all our voices are heard at Walmart headquarters when the petitions are delivered.

Click here to learn more and add your name to my petition to Walmart CEO Mike Duke, and demand he publicly commit to raise wages and increase access to full-time hours so that workers at Walmart can make a living wage of at least $25,000 per year.

Thank you for your support.

Barbara Gertz
