Calling Out Walmart

Walmart: End the Double Standard

Walmart's abuses are getting ridiculous: Angela WIlliams was fired last week for talking "too much" manager-approved sick leave to care for herself and her ailing grandmother. Another coworker was also fired, while a third was given his "final warning." Not coincidently, all three had been speaking publicly about the abuses they faced on a daily basis

No, Angela has been evicted, forcing her daughter to scrape by with her grandmother while Angela looks for a new job and a new place to live.

Meanwhile, Mike Duke and Rob Walton have their jobs despite reports of their involvement in a reported bribery scandal and a high-level executive cover-up of the incident!

It's time to put an end to Walmart's double standards.

You can help Angela and workers like her. Visit a Walmart store near you on Friday, June 1st to collect petition signatures to demand Walmart end its abuses of workers and our laws. Click here for instructions.

Together, we can help Angela gather more than 15,000 signatures demanding the resignations of Mike Duke and Rob Walton as well as getting her and her coworkers reinstated!
