  • One Struggle rally in South Florida: “Walmart profits come in coffins!”

    May 6, 2013

    BeginningAmericanFallpicHere’s an update from Stephanie McMillan, author of The Beginning of the American Fall, and the upcoming collection The Minimum Security Chronicles

     

    On May 04, 2013, about 45 South Floridians rallied at Walmart Super Center in Davie to express solidarity with workers in Bangladesh. The death toll of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Savar, Bangladesh currently stands at 547.

    The protesters chanted, “Walmart profits come in coffins!” “When human rights are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back!” and “Hey Walmart, what do you say, how many workers have you killed today?”

    Walmart makes $15.4 billion annual profit by maintaining exploitative and dangerous working conditions around the globe. In the last 6 months, at least 659 Bangladeshi workers have been killed making clothing for them and other retail brands. In the U.S., Walmart store employees and
    warehouse workers suffer low wages, long hours, no benefits, and no union organization.
