A Taste of Kenosha, Wisconsin

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT KENOSHA?

  1. Kenosha is a city and the county seat of Kenosha County in the State of Wisconsin in United States. With a population of 99,218 as of May 2011, Kenosha is the fourth-largest city in Wisconsin.

  2. Years ago a busy center of manufacturing, Kenosha is today often thought of as a "bedroom community" within the Chicago-Milwaukee megalopolis, often attracting new residents from Illinois, which leads to Kenosha's frequent appellation as Chicago's northernmost suburb. With several area transportation options, many residents commute to their places of employment. According to county statistics, 49% of Kenosha's workforce commutes outside of Kenosha County to their positions. Many travel northward towards Milwaukee or south into the Chicago area. Kenosha does have some of its own employment, and is not a "typical" suburb; in fact, many locals consider neighboring communities Pleasant Prairie and Somers to be suburbs of Kenosha.

black/african american opinion

Statement by Mary Pat Tifft regarding Walmart’s opening on Thanksgiving night:

“This Thanksgiving, while millions of families plan to spend quality time with their loved ones, many Walmart workers have been told we will be stocking shelves and preparing for doors to open at 8pm on Thanksgiving night.

My son is coming home from Afghanistan for the holiday, and I would be devastated if I had been scheduled to work. I see the disappointment in the eyes of my co-workers, especially those with young kids, that aren't going to be able to share the holiday with their families.

This early opening is one more example of Walmart's disconnect with the workers who keep its stores running and disregard for all of our families. As the largest employer in the country, Walmart could be setting a standard for businesses to value families, but instead, this is one more Walmart policy that hurts the families of workers at its stores.”

###

Mary Pat Tifft has worked at Walmart in Kenosha, WI for 24 years and is one of the many workers scheduled to work during the Thanksgiving holiday. She is one of the founding members of OUR Walmart, the associate-led organization that aims to ensure every Walmart employee is treated with respect, raise employee working standards, and improve customer service at Walmart stores nationwide.
