MOORESVILLE, N.C. — On Friday morning, employees at the Walmart Neighborhood Market in Mooresville walked out in protest.
Around 9 a.m., the Mooresville workers led a strike and started a rally outside the store to express their demands:
- $15/hr minimum wage.
- Right to form a union without interference.
- Equal compensation for equal work.
- Affordable benefits and paid time off.
- Consistent schedule.
- Strong COVID-19 policy.
They also featured a “solidarity table” that offered snacks and literature to customers and community members.
The workers are collaborating with North Carolina Raise Up, a movement in support of a $15 minimum wage.
