As part of a national week of action against Wal-Mart’s sick leave policy, community activists gathered Wednesday at Chicago’s only Wal-Mart to protest. The “Wake Up Wal-Mart” campaign objects to the company’s practice of penalizing employees who use their paid sick days. Fearing they may lose their job, some employees return to work before they are well. Employees say this endangers the community’s health, as well as their own.
