Wal-Mart Workers Speak Out

STITCH, the Campaign for Labor Rights and the International Labor Rights Fund are
co-sponsoring the 2006 Wal-Mart Worker Tour, which will pass through the UT-
Austin campus on October 24. This special event will feature workers from
Colombia, Nicaragua, China and the United States who are producing goods for
Wal-Mart.

Tue, October 24, 2006 | University Prebyterian Church, 2203 San Antonio

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Come hear workers share their personal stories and discuss how Wal-Mart's
business model impacts them, their families, their unions and the economies in
their home countries. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion and
questions from the audience.

How much did that T-shirt really cost? Hear the experiences of sweatshop workers
from around the world who supply Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer. Workers
from China, Swaziland and Nicaragua will be in Austin, Tuesday, October 24, to
share their stories as part of a national tour to bring home the real costs of Wal-
Mart's so-called low prices.
