Today in Labor History
Today (literally) in labor history, November 23, 2012:  Workers employed at Walmart — the nation’s largest private-sector employer — strike nationwide for better wages and working conditions.  Walmart, whose net sales in 2011 were $443.9 billion, pays its 1.4 million workers in the U.S. an average of $8.81/hour.  A third of Walmart’s employees work less than 28 hours a week and don’t qualify for benefits.
