They also provide "cheap jobs with no security since they are an at will employee."

Richard Barrera, who is a member of the San Diego Unified School board, reminded the audience that good jobs, meaning people don't need two to three jobs to barely survive, allow their children to grow up into productive citizens. He also said that "we need partners that will create real jobs." This is why the school board passed the first Project Labor Agreement (PLA) to rebuild the schools. This means "apprenticeships in construction from the community of Sherman Heights."
There were screams from the crowd that they were going to unionize Walmart. That this was not going to be a blue Walmart but a yellow one. This came from the UFCW contingent.
Barrera closed with some stirring words. "We don want you to set up a store where you exploit our parents and then throw some money to charity."
Labor is awakening across the nation, and this is what we are starting to see.
The group was also serenaded by a Mariachi band and by the Women Occupy San Diego
