The One-Person Walmart Walkout

by evanmcmurry

A round for this soul:

The walkout included just one worker — Vanessa Ferreira, age 59. Ferreira informed her manager publicly Wednesday morning that she was going on strike. The other employees watched her walk out of the store, then went back to doing their jobs.

[…] Ferreira said she tried to recruit members, but it wasn’t easy.

“They’re so scared,” Ferreira said of her co-workers. “I couldn’t get anybody to join. They said, ‘You can’t fight Walmart.'”
