Join Wisconsin workers on Tuesday, June 4, at 10:00 a.m. at the Walmart Supercenter, 3355 S. 27th Street, Milwaukee.
The world’s largest retailer is gearing up for a huge annual shareholders’ meeting and workers are taking action to stand up for their coworkers’ right to speak about things like poverty wages, unfair treatment of pregnant workers without being punished or fired. Strikers will visit the homes of members of the Walton family to challenge them to do better by workers and they want to escalate with huge protests across the country. Walmart Moms have planned over 20 strikes to protest poverty wages and poor working conditions.
Workers have called for a national day of action on June 4. Will you be there at 10:00 a.m. at 3355 S. 27th St., Milwaukee, 53215?
Every year Walmart uses its shareholders meeting to convince investors that everything is going great for the company, but that this year that will be harder than it’s ever been before. Taxpayer groups are protesting the huge subsidies and tax breaks the company enjoys, investors are upset with big bonuses for executives who haven’t earned them, green groups are exposing Walmart’s greenwashing and lack of action on important climate issues, and women’s groups are calling out its arcane pregnancy policies.
Walmart is taking heat from all sides, and we want investors and the business press to see that ordinary people – the company’s customers and potential customers – are standing with workers and calling for change.
