Black Friday Protests at Walmart.

There will be Black Friday protests at many Walmarts in support of their workers.

Walmart’s stores have been a bonanza for members of the Walton family. Several are billionaires. The Walton Foundation spends $160 million each year to encourage school privatization and non-union schools, charters, vouchers, and TFA.

With all their billions, they pay low wages to their employees. Some Walnarts are accepting food donations for their employees. The Walmart workers are seeking $15 an hour. Too much for the billionaires of the Walton Family.

  1. One overlooked cause of the Depression on the 1930’s was that business did not pay enough wages for workers to become consumers of the products they made. Once upper class had their full of possession, demand stopped, production drops and unemployment results. That causes a drop in all areas of an economy. They have not learned you cannot have a consumer economy without consumers.
