Walmart would rather see the operation shut down “entirely instead of having employees with any kind of power.”
That kind of power?
As White notes:
“Many Wal-Mart employees are apparently so underpaid that their only recourse is to try and unionize their stores in order to negotiate a better wage.”
Meanwhile, four of the Waltons, who control Walmart, were named to the Forbes’ top 10 richest Americans list. Jim Walton ranked No. 6 at a net worth of $15.7 billion, right behind Warren Buffett and Microsoft founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen.
Do the Waltons really feel threatened? Are they really worried about some workers organizing to make an honest buck to take care of their families?
This is disgraceful. Boycott Walmart.
