On the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, ten warehouse workers triumphantly returned to work today after winning their jobs back.
Just over a week ago ten workers were suspended after taking a 5-minute break when temperatures hit more than 90 degree inside the warehouse. The suspensions were the latest act of retaliation workers have experienced since raising concerns about working conditions inside the Walmart-contracted warehouse.
Yesterday, Rep. Mark Takano, who represents the area, asked for answers from the warehouse operators including why ten workers were suspended following a short break.
Five federal charges have been filed in the past two months to stop retaliation against workers at the warehouse. Thirty-two workers went on strike to stop retaliation in July.
