US and China workers unite to fight Walmart on low wages and work schedules

Together, the U.S. group called OUR Walmart and the Wal-Mart Chinese Workers Association plan to fight low wages and work schedule changes at the world’s largest retailer. Last month, they discussed effective American strike strategies before Chinese Wal-Mart workers staged a strike in several cities over a new work scheduling system that they worried would cut overtime payments.
