Walmart Protesters: None Have Applied for Scholarships, and Grants, or Financial-Aid


Approved Scholarships and Grants, and Educational Courses

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 protestors 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.

Scholarship Blog Challenge to Fastfood Workers at McDonalds, Walmart, Wendys, and Kentucky Fried Chicken Protesters

Protesters have also been protesting and taking pre-scheduled job walk-offs at popular fast-food chains. Mcdonald’s, Wendys, and KFC have felt the brunt of these organized protests as workers in more than 100 cities have apparently decided to take a day (24 hours) off and scream for higher wages when it all it takes is 1 hour at most to complete a detailed online scholarship application sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars. Scholarship applications for Moms can be completed in as little as 3 minutes I have been told.

All of the protesters want a new minimum wage of $15 an hour. Skeptics contend that this proposed minimum wage is either outrageous, or too much for unskilled workers who have not even sought scholarships, and grants, to advance themselves. National Academy of American Scholars sponsors FREE scholarships, and grants so price is not an issue.

Do each of the more than 2 million Walmart workers have the ambition to visit the website of National Academy of American Scholars and browse each and every scholarship, grants, and financial-aid option available?

Do each of the more than 1.9 million McDonald’s workers have the ambition to visit the website of National Academy of American Scholars and browse each and every scholarship, grants, and financial-aid option available?

In summary, we encourage all of the millions of Walmart employees, and the millions of employees of McDonalds, Wendys, and Kentucky Fried Chicken, as well as persons who support the protesting workers to consider and apply for all of the scholarships, grants, and financial-aid options sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars. As of today’s date, not a single Walmart worker or fast-food protestor has applied for a single $25,000 scholarship.

I challenge these Black Friday protesters and fastfood workers to put the same energy behind their protests and apply for the more than $1 million in scholarships, grants, and financial-aid sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars.
