Growing coalitions of community leaders, workers and faith leaders across the US are calling on Walmart to change its business practices in communities nationwide as Walmart celebrates its 50th anniversary, according to the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW).
According to the UFCW, as Walmart tells a one-sided anniversary story about the company’s business and its values, a new website featuring personal stories on the impact Walmart is having on the lives of workers, businesses and communities is launching.
Associates are also gathering thousands of signatures for an 'anniversary e-card,' outlining united demands for Walmart and the Walton Family to change to help rebuild America.
The number of prominent elected officials, financial advisors and community leaders speaking out about problems at Walmart has also been growing.
Major pension funds voted their shares against Walmart CEO and members of the board this June, elected officials and candidates are publicly refusing donations from Walmart and civil rights leaders won their call for Walmart to withdraw from the American Legislative Exchange Council.
