Walmart Strikes: Lone Worker Walks Out, Receives Trespass Warning Ahead Of Black Friday
ST. CLOUD, FL. - There was an employee walkout at a Walmart Supercenter in St. Cloud,
Fla., on Wednesday morning.
The walkout included just one worker -- Vanessa Ferreira, age 59.
Ferreira informed her manager publicly Wednesday morning that she was
going on strike. The other employees watched her walk out of the store,
then went back to doing their jobs.
Within a half hour, Ferreira would be told by police outside that she
was trespassing and ordered to leave. She's worked in the store's cake
department for eight years, and she earns $11.90 an hour, she said.
"I love to decorate cakes," Ferreira said Wednesday. "That's my priority -- to do my cakes the best I can."
