Workers and Poor Peoples Rights Day

by on January 16, 2013



360l Washington Blvd. Baltimore, MD 21227
Sat. January 19, 2013
12 Noon to 1 P.M.

Demand justice for low wage workers from Walmart to McDonalds.
Stand for workers rights from Michigan to Maryland!
Say NO to so-called “right to work” laws and YES to raising the minimum wage!
No to inadequate health care and lack of right’s on the job!

One out of every four persons in Baltimore City is reportedly living in poverty. Many of those who live in poverty actually work, but at jobs that pay next to nothing. In many cases these same workers are employed by multi-billion dollar greedy corporations like Wal-Mart and McDonalds.

Let’s stand together! If Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were alive today he would be walking the picket line.

HEAR: Representatives of the OUR Walmart campaign; low wage workers fighting to raise the minimum wage; and many others. Let’s let Walmart know that those in the community support the Walmart workers; that “an injury to one is an injury to all”.

Initiated by: Baltimore Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly

Dear Super Walmart Manager,

We the undersigned, community, civil rights, student, and religious leaders, have picked this special weekend, the weekend commemorating Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, to call on you to provide justice for your workers.

Dr. King Jr. marched for justice for all!  He called for an end to poverty, and poverty wages.  He spoke out for worker’s rights on and off the job.  He was jailed for fighting against discrimination. 

Low wages, inadequate health care coverage, lack of right’s on the job including retaliation for speaking out, among many other things, are problems for all of us.

Surely, the multi-billion dollar Walmart corporation can do better!

We ask you to seriously take up the demands of OUR Walmart, your very own workers, and hear their voices.

“An injury to one, is an injury to all.”
