Louisiana Guest Workers Expose Forced Labor Coverup At Walmart Supply Chain and Take Protest To Walmart Board Member's Home

Mexican guest workers,who peelcrawfish for C.J.'s Seafood in Louisiana confronted their bosses after being forced to work shifts of up to 24 hours, weren't allowed to take breaks, were cheated out of their overtime pay and were threatened with physical violence. Ana Diaz, one of the workers said, "when we wanted to take breaks the supervisor threatened to hit us. When one of our co-workers called the police because she couldn't take the treatment, then our boss threatened to hurt our families." Despite the threats, workers walked off their shift and demanded payment of their unpaid wages. The workers have extended their protest to Sam's Club, a Walmart subsidiary that buys 85 percent of C.J.'s crawfish and marched on the New York offices and penthouse of Walmart board members.
