The website CorporateActionNetwork.org lists the Pascagoula store as one where the non-union group will stage a protest and encourages workers to sign up. It was unclear how many were committed to the strike or how significantly it would affect the store's business.
The website that lists SuperCenter #1066 (Pascagoula) reads:
Stand with Walmart workers in their fight for their rights. For decades, Walmart Stores, Inc have dragged down wages, forcing their workers to work irregular schedules, and intimidated and took retribution on any workers who fought back. It's time for the retribution to end, so come to this local Walmart to show your solidarity and tell Walmart that they need to pay their fair share.
Allison Mannos is with the L.A. Alliance for New Economy and explained why many across the U.S. are walking out.
"Wal-Mart had announced it would open earlier this year," she said. "It's making employees work Thursday night and not be able to be with their families."
Earlier this week News Mississippi spoke with Wal-Mart. At that point they did not believe that Mississippi would be affected. But, since then, both union and non-union employees at more than 1,000 stores have pledged to walk out.
