WALMART’S REPORT PAINTS A ROSY PICTURE, BUT WORKERS TELL A DIFFERENT STORY

Time for world’s largest retailer to invest in their workers

Washington, DC — In response to Walmart’s second-quarter earnings reportMaking Change at Walmart (MCAW) released the following statement:

“Walmart’s quarterly earnings report paints a rosy picture that does not match the reality of what is going on in the stores,” said Jess Levin, communications director for MCAW.

“Workers regularly tell us they are still struggling with under-staffed and under-stocked stores, erratic scheduling, and poverty wages. CEO Doug McMillon clearly understands the relationship between happy workers, better customer service, and lower employee turnover. Now, he needs to go beyond just talking about this so-called billion dollar investment in employees and make real changes that actually result in happy Walmart workers.”
