Walmart workers need your support!

Good Afternoon Brothers and Sisters,

Everyday Walmart violates workers rights and intentionally underpays workers.Despite Wal-Mart's propaganda,
we meet Walmart workers every day who are working for less than $9/hour without any paid sick time. We know
walmart can afford to pay their workers a living wage and provide the benefits workers deserve. That's why
we need you to join us in a solidarity action with Clergy to send the message to Walmart and customers that
we all deserve better. Walmart workers are gearing up for Black Friday and need community, faith and labors
support to show their strength. We will be joined by Clergy leaders from the south side in order to call
Walmart to respect workers rights and to ensure that wal-mart knows that the jobs that are brought to the
community need to be good jobs and living wage jobs.

We are mobilizing on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013 with OUR Walmart:

Location: Parking Lot

8300 South Holland Road

Chicago, IL 60620

Time: 4:00pm
