In a set of unprecedented actions, workers in China went on wildcat strikes at three Walmart locations in China, one after another, in chain reaction fashion.
The mobile messaging app “WeChat” helped organize the strikes at locations over 900 miles apart.
Chinese leaders are already worried about social unrest due to the commodities crash and overcapacity in steel production that led to layoffs.
These strikes will heighten official fears about more labor unrest.
