WALMART WORKER HOLDS PRESS CONFERENCE OUTSIDE BENTONVILLE WELFARE OFFICE

From welfare to fanfare: how Walmart is dazzling reporters away from the real story at this year’s shareholders meeting

WHO: Making Change at Walmart and current Walmart associate Anthony Leal

WHAT: Press Conference on Walmart’s low wages, poor benefits, and taxpayer funded corporate welfare.

WHERE: Human Services Department – 900 SE 13th Ct, Bentonville, AR 72712

WHEN: Thursday, June 1, 2017 11:00 AM

WHY: During Walmart’s 2017 annual shareholders meeting, Making Change at Walmart, along with current California Walmart employee Anthony Leal, will host a press conference outside of Bentonville’s Human Services Department to expose the real story about how, and many workers, are paid and treated by the big box giant.

Anthony Leal is a full time associate who has been with Walmart for over 5 years and only makes $11.53 an hour. Walmart claims the “average wage” for full time hourly employees is $13.75, yet the real stories of workers around the country show that many of them, like Anthony, are paid so little that they rely on government assistance programs to survive. Programs funded by the taxpayer.

With Walmart’s low wages, poor benefits, fire/rehire culture, and high turnover rate, the company has set a pretty low standard when it comes to sustainable, dignified jobs in the United States. Just one Walmart super center is estimated to cost taxpayers between $904,542 and $1.74 million per year in public assistance money. And in one Dallas Texas Walmart store, we discovered the employee turnover rate was 321%, making it virtually impossible for a worker to build a career or sustain a dignified living.

Walmart claims it is investing in its workforce – in more training, better scheduling, and higher wages, however, the company has plans to automate many of its customer service positions and has even opened a flagship store that replaces cashiers and associates with scan guns and check out screens.

BACKGROUND:
Making Change at Walmart kicked off the 2017 Expose Walmart Tour on May 15th in Phoenix Arizona. Over the past 3 weeks, the tour has traveled to 22 states and over 30 cities, meeting with lawmakers, community leaders, union members, taxpayers, and workers in an effort to expose the largest private employer in the country, Walmart, as the poor-wage-paying, taxpayer-wasting, bad corporate neighbor that it is.

Director Randy Parraz will speak at the shareholders meeting Friday and will discuss some of the real stories the campaign has learned along the tour and other information that Walmart doesn’t want you to know.
