On Friday, November 23, Occupy Long Beach protests in front of the Walmart store located in Down Town Long Beach in support of Walmart employees. The protestors demand higher wages, health care benefits, better hours for Walmart employees. The demonstration began with peaceful meditation and sign making. None of the Walmart employees joined the strike and couple workers reported that they were threatened to be fired on the spot if they joined the strike or engaged in a conversation with any members of the Occupy group. The demonstration was peaceful until the police saw nineteen year old Honor O'Kane drawing on the cement. O'Kane was taking aside while the members of Occupy group were trying to persuade the police that drawing on the ground with a chalk was not illegal and can not be confused with a graffiti created by spray paint. As a result, Vivian Price, a professor of labor studies at CSUDH was arrested on a charge resisting arrest and obstruction of justice. Price was handcuffed and taken to the Long Beach Police Department.

If Wal Mart is so Unfair

by Molly Bennett Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012 at 10:15 AM

You would think that if the workers thought that Wal Mart was unfair that they would be the ones on the picket, not radical unionistas like Price and the other stooges at this event. The truth is that Wal Mart treats their workers with respect and consideration, and pay them above minimum wage just to start. The workers don't want or in any way need, your support.

Workers don't benefit from a union that exists solely to bring strife between management and staff and to funnel money to the fucking democrap party. FAIL is the operative word for this protest.
