Stop Walmart from killing jobs in NYC
Sign the petition below to let Walmart know that in tough economic times like these, the last thing we need is a job-destroying low-road employer taking over our city’s economy:
After a Walmart opened in Chicago, 25% of existing retail businesses surveyed within four miles eventually closed. We must prevent this from happening in our communities, which are devastated by high unemployment.
We urge our local elected officials to bring good jobs to our communities, not companies like Walmart that lower the average wage in an area and destroy existing, local jobs!
