Labor activists march into Wal-Mart, demand fired pregnant worker’s job back

Wal-Mart fired Arleja Stevens for pregnancy-related absences two years after agreeing never to do so. On May 25, she walked back into the H st Wal-Mart to demand her job back. She was backed by activists from Making Change at Walmart and DC Jobs with Justice. The manager objected to protesters inside the store but accepted a copy of DC laws pertaining to pregnancy and employment and agreed to meet with her in an “open door” session at 10AM on May 26, 2016. If she does not get her job back protesters will target Wal-Mart’s main corporate office in DC on the 7th of June.
