STAND WITH ROSE CAMPBELL & WALMART WORKERS DEMANDING CHANGE
While Walmart CEO Mike Duke rakes in record pay -- more than 1,000 times what an average Walmart associate makes -- he’s refusing to honor Walmart’s commitments to its workers. They’re standing up and demanding that Walmart improve labor standards with actions in stores across the country. Sign the petition saying you have their backs, and we’ll make sure your voice is heard in Walmart Headquarters when we deliver the petitions to the annual meeting in June.
I'm standing with Walmart workers and calling on you to raise wages and increase access to full time hours so that no workers at Walmart make less than $25,000 per year.
Walmart is among the most profitable companies in the US and is owned by the Walton Family, the richest family in America, yet workers at Walmart must rely on food stamps and even go hungry because of lack of hours and low wages.
In the last year, Walmart has faced a series of alarming crises that have impacted workers and our communities throughout the world; including a fire at a Bangladesh factory that killed 112 garment workers, where Walmart merchandise is produced; an alleged $24 million bribery scheme in Mexico and high-level cover-up; and a lawsuit alleging wage theft from warehouse workers in California and Illinois.
Walmart can do better. You can start to solve these problems by treating your workers with respect, paying them a living wage, and providing them with the hours they want and the staffing levels you need.
I urge you to do so.
