Occupy Naperville

A little rain didn’t stop a local group from protesting the Walmart Corporation.

Occupy Naperville recently protested in front of the store on Route 59 in Naperville.

The group braved the wetness and wind and had former workers speak to the group about work conditions and compensation.

They also brought signs, which were displayed along the street for passing drivers on the busy road.

The protestors believe Walmart should be paying some of its workers more than the Illinois minimum wage of $8.25 per hour.

Occupy Naperville peacefully protests at a different location each Saturday and is based on the popular Occupy Wall Street movement from 2011.
