Why Have Walmart and Fastfood Protesters Not Applied for any Scholarships, and Grants?
As early as 7:30 a.m. on November 29, 2013, thousands of so-called protesters decided to conduct a massive demonstration at numerous Walmarts around the country. Knowing that this day has been dubbed the annual “Black Friday” shopping frenzy by the main-stream media, the thousands of demonstrators sought to disrupt the economic operations of the nation's largest retailer. For what? What did the protesters want?
Many of the protesters assembled together and in separate cities to attack Walmart's apparent policy of economically moderate wages. In the state of Illinois alone, the main-stream media reported that as many as 11 separate protests against WalMart were occurring, and were demanding what they termed a living wage. The protests were apparently being led by a suspicious organization called Organization United for Respect at Walmart (OUR Walmart). This is a non-union worker group that is apparently backed by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. Unions have historically attacked Walmart companies because Walmart have resisted efforts by Unions to allow its workers to join a group whose membership would inevitably lead to perhaps higher wages, but would also destroy the core Walmart model of lower prices.
Groups Backing Walmart Black Friday Protesters Have Not Supported Scholarships
In various media circles, it has been reported that many of the protesters are seeking as much as $15/hour or $12/hour for a job that requires no specialized training, certification, or college degree.
Further research reveals, the groups supporting and organizing the protesters have not aggressively or even moderately supported the numerous scholarships, grants, and financial-aid options sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars. Specifically, what is the United Food and Commercial Workers Union doing to persuade its members to join the free Scholarship Club of National Academy of American Scholars, and to apply for the numerous scholarships, grants, and financial-aid sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars??
Many non-believers and doubters are asking this simple question: How could such a large group of protesters assemble at one location for a protest for higher wages, and consume several hours in the process, when all it takes is 10 minutes at most to apply for scholarships, grants, and financial-aid sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars? In some cases, scholarships we sponsor takes just 3 minutes to apply for.
Challenge to Walmart Protesters and 2 million Walmart Workers
When the Organization United for Respect at Walmart (OUR Walmart) encourages its members to apply for the scholarships, grants, and financial-aid that are sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars, then I will believe in the integrity of their efforts. In fact, applying for scholarships, grants, and financial-aid is the ultimate litmus test to ascertain if a person really wants to improve himself/herself or are they merely seeking higher wages without having earned the higher wages.For a detailed continuation of this article, and numerous other sources of renewable scholarships, grants, and financial-aid, please visit the central page for this information:
