Workers stage walkout at Chicago-area Walmarts
Walkouts were held at three Chicago area Walmarts today as part of a movement happening across the country.
100 Walmart workers and supporters picketed outside the Walmart in Chatham.
Employees protested low wages, unpredictable hours and worker intimidation.
They’re asking for a minimum salary of $25,000 dollars a year for full-timers.
Many employees stayed on the job during the two-hour strike and business was brisk.
Walmart issued a statement reminding Chicagoans that Chatham fought hard to bring a Walmart and its jobs to the community.
