#OpWalmartElves - Wal-Mart thinks they can sell pictures of Zuccotti Park and Occupy Wall Street after arresting Occupy people who stood w/ Walmart Strikers? #WalmartElves say NO WAY!
The #WalmartElves are on strike and do not support Walmart selling Occupy Wall Street pictures.
Instead, we are asking the people who Occupied spaces around the world to print their best Occupy picture(s) and give them away for free, either as a gift outside a Wal-Mart.
You can tweet your pictures to us or use #OpWalmartElves, or submit to them to our Tumblr here! We already have a beautiful picture of Zuccotti to give away for free!

Revolution is NOT for sale. Print your #Occupy pics and GIVE them away.
We might have this now
#WalmartElves say #RaiseTheWage, Walmart!
Great question, Philoceraptor! Research shows that modest increases in the minimum wage spread out over a few years have little to no impact on either prices or hiring. In fact, raising the minimum wage does not CAUSE inflation, rather it is raised to CATCH UP with the inflation that has already occurred.

#WalmartElves have many reasons to #BoycottWalmart!
Walmart is sued several times a day, sometimes in class action lawsuits, sometimes for allegations of employee rights violations, sometimes for injuries sustained by customers or employees in its stores or parking lots. And in November 2012, it allegedly fired 117 workers because they threatened to join Black Friday protests. That case is with the National Labor Relations Board, which may sue.
#WalmartElves want living wage and respect!
"All we want is for Walmart to give us a living wage and show us some respect – that’s not too much to ask from a multi-billion dollar company." – Walmart worker Isaiah Beaman, Landover, Maryland.
Don’t think Walmart’s owners the Waltons can afford to give workers a raise? Think again. - #WalmartElves
How long would it take an average Walmart worker to save that much for retirement? 140 years!
As the largest private employer in the United States and the world, Walmart is clearly setting the wrong standards for working people.
