With the Wimbledon finals coming up this weekend, let’s kick off this week’s installment of the Six Degrees of the Walmart 1% with a tennis star.
In honor of this weekend’s largest ever anti-Walmart march and rally in Los Angeles, we thought we’d kick off the Six Degrees of the Walmart 1% with a movie star. Who better than Tom Cruise?
The Jersey Shore spinoff Snooki & JWoWW premiered last night on MTV. We missed the show, but hearing about it got us thinking that there must be a connection between America’s favorite omnipresent pouf-ed reality TV star and the Walmart 1 Percent, and that we should find it. (After all, as we learned earlier this week with LeBron James, Walmart 1 Percent connections pop up even in the most unexpected places.)
From guest blogger Kurt Scott:
This afternoon, Walmart wrapped up its annual meeting in Arkansas. For us, the highlight of the spectacle was OUR Walmart member Jackie Goebel’s presentation of shareholder proposal #6, calling for greater disclosure about incentive pay. Jackie submitted the proposal with fellow OUR Walmart members, associates, and shareholders Mary Tifft, Girshriela Green, and Carlton Smith.
