Look how they are treating employees

"We have been speaking out for good jobs with decent pay, regular hours, affordable healthcare and respect, but instead of working with us to make changes, Wal-Mart has attempted to silence us and has retaliated against us for speaking out. Our jobs have been threatened, our hours cut, our schedules changed. Some of us have even been fired."

WHAT TO DO INSTEAD!

Instead of going to Walmart, go and support Meijer, Scott's, and Kroger. They have everything that Walmart has and are better. They don't make prices so low that small businesses go out of business like Walmart does.

What is indented...

We want to stop spending our precious money at a cheapskate store and give it to stores whose products are actually made in America. We want our money to go to stores who treat there employees with respect and care that they deserve. Walmart started out selling products only made in the USA, but now 70% of those products are made in China and shipped to the super-centers. To us, this is not what our country is about. We don't want stores like this and to be known to act like this. We are better than this. If Mr. Walton knew what has happened he'd be turning in his grave. I guarantee that. We're better that this and we need to put a stop to Walmart.
