They're the largest private employer in the world. They make $16 billion a year in profits. And yet their workers live in poverty and rely on public programs to survive. They're Wal-Mart, and for their workers, it's always low wages. Always.
We at AFGE cannot stand for workers making low wages and dismal benefits for a hard day's work. That's why we are joining with Wal-Mart employees and calling for $15 an hour and full-time work.
Wal-Mart tracks and responds to actions - because of workers' rallies and complaints, they have improved their pregnancy policies and shift assignment schedules. And just weeks ago, on the day that workers were arrested in New York City and Washington, D.C. calling for Wal-Mart to publicly commit to higher wages, Wal-Mart announced it would eliminate minimum wage jobs.
We still have a long way to go towards a living wage - and that's why we need your help.
See you on Black Friday.
