National Day of Strike – August 29th
You might have seen me in the comments, but this is my first actual post on this site.
I figured I’d spread the word that there is a nationwide strike being planned for August 29th consisting of fast food workers and other low wage workers. If you’re sick of Target and aren’t planning on sticking around – or if you work another job or have friends/family working in similar conditions – now’s the chance to let your feelings be known. Keep in mind that the applicant pools are huge and Target or <insert company here> probably won’t hesitate to fire you for striking, but we’ve got to take a stand at some point and fight for living wages. We employees are just as much the lifeblood of the company as consumers and we deserve more for our hard work. Just make sure you have large enough groups to halt productivity for the duration of the strike, or else the effect will be minimal; we’ve got to hit the bottom-line for it to work.

Take care and best of luck to those who participate.
