In These Times writer David Moberg reports that warehouse workers in Illinois and California are standing up against a giant, Wal-mart, and the contractors that run its warehouses.  Workers are protesting the company’s firing of workers who sued over alleged violations of wage law.  What this story shows is that workers can join in solidarity even when they do not have union protections.  Good luck to these brave people.  It’s not easy to fight the giant.
