Reminder: Think Twice About Supporting Wal-Mart

Standard

Wal-Mart’s decision to end healthcare coverage for part-time workers is being attributed to “rising costs.”

This is coming from the same company that returned $13 billion to shareholders in 2013.

That $13 billion isn’t hard-earned by the shareholders, it is made on the backs of minimum and low-wage employees across the United States, outsourced contracts for goods made cheaply by low-wage workers around the world, and an economic model that concentrates wealth and supports profits over people.

Think twice before giving Wal-Mart one more of your hard-earned dollars.
