FCWA Solidarity Statement in Support of Walmart workers

Walmart: Home of Low Wages

 A statement on the Walmart Economy

Wal-Mart, walmart, Holiday ShoppingAcross the country, Wal-Mart workers have been raising their voices calling on the world’s largest private employer to publicly commit to end illegal retaliation against workers and to provide better jobs and better working conditions. As the country’s largest employer of women, with $16 billion in annual profits, Wal-Mart could single-handedly turn the lives of women workers around, and in turn, have a huge impact on jobs for women workers nationwide.

But to date they have chosen to suppress workers’ voices and pay wages so low that many are forced to rely on taxpayer assistance to survive. This should not be happening in America and we can do something about it!

We stand in solidarity with Wal-Mart workers as they go on strike on June 4, and we support their call on Wal-Mart to end their illegal attempts to silence its employees.
