I Support Walmart Associates Standing for Respect
Walmart Associates from across the country are coming together to form a new Associate-only organization named the "Organization United for Respect at Walmart.
At Making Change at Walmart, we have a vision for American workers—in grocery, retail, and in our communities—for respect and dignity at jobs that pay fairly and guarantee workers a voice.
We applaud Walmart Associates' efforts to join together to secure that future.
As the largest retailer in the world, Walmart sets the standards for the retail industry and has repeatedly lowered the bar for wages and conditions for working people. Because of Walmart’s influence, our destinies are intertwined with Associates who are standing up for change –and we enthusiastically support these Associates who are working to raise standards and improve conditions at Walmart.
We, the undersigned, declare our support for the Organization United for Respect at Walmart and Walmart Associates, who are working for respect and dignity at jobs that pay fairly and guarantee workers a voice.
