Mooresville Walmart workers protest in support of union, higher pay and more

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.
