After employees at a Raleigh, North Carolina Wal-Mart were fired for striking in June of this year, they decided to make their voices heard. The group created a campaign named, “Our Wal-Mart” and delivered a petition with over 170,000 signatures to store managers. After managers refused the documents, they were met with a surprise they will never forget.
We applaud these men and women who have embraced their “Mafietta” and chosen to speak out against injustice.
MAFIETTA – maf-E-etta – – adjective – an aggressive way of achieving a goal or desired result – (ex. That was a mafietta move.)
