Wal-Mart worker reacts to new CEO announcement

“Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) has been heading in the wrong direction, and it’s a testament to the pressure the company is feeling that they’re changing leadership at this moment.” 

“We’re happy to see Mr. McMillon acknowledge the hard work of associates in his statement this morning, and we hope that this appreciation translates into improving jobs for Walmart workers. Americans nationwide are looking to Wal-Mart to improve jobs and strengthen our economy, and Mr. McMillon has an opportunity to be a leader in moving Wal-Mart in the right direction, not just in offering more empty promises. We sincerely hope that Mr. McMillon will answer the country’s calls for Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) to publicly commit to paying $25,000 a year, providing full-time work and ending its illegal retaliation against its own employees.”

At the same time, Walmart workers from Miami walked off the job this morning in protest of the company’s illegal retaliation against workers who have been speaking out for better jobs.
