Walmart pushed its way into DC by offering good jobs for DC residents, even promising $13/hour wages. In December of last year, the first two stores opened up. Now, less than one year later, Walmart associates in DC are calling on the company to pay $15/hour and give consistent full-time hours.
We need all of you – the community – to stand with Walmart associates this Black Friday in saying “no more broken promises!” Walmart needs to provide living wage jobs with full-time hours, jobs that sustain families instead of keeping them mired in poverty. Walmart needs to Respect DC!
This Black Friday, on Walmart’s biggest sales day of the year and its first Black Friday in DC, help the associates send that message. Join us and sign up here!
