WRC report says Walmart benefits from labor abuses in supply chain

In early June, guest workers at Walmart supplier CJ’s Seafood in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana went on strike to protest alleged forced labor, unpaid labor, and intimidation—including threatened violence—at their job. The workers report that their employer and supervisors “forced them to work up to 24‐hour shifts with no overtime pay, locked them in the plant, threatened them with beatings to make them work faster, and threatened violence against their families back in Mexico after workers contacted law enforcement out of desperation.”
