Walmart So Cares About Children

On the subject of striking Walmart workers:

Numerous activities over the past year or longer “have caused disruptions to Walmart’s business, resulted in misinformation being shared publicly about our company, and created an uncomfortable environment and undue stress on Walmart’s customers, including families with children,” Walmart outside counsel Steven Wheeless said in a letter sent on Friday to Deborah Gaydos, assistant general counsel of the UFCW.

Yes, won’t someone PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN, asks Walmart, a business that compensates  its CEO more in one hour than retail employees earn in an entire year, has refused to pay overtime, understaffs to the point of compromising employee safety, and pays such a meager wage that a majority of its employees with children are living below the poverty line. But yes, think of the children. Better late than never.

It most be hard to run a business when you are so busy having strike organizers arrestedfiring striking warehouse workers on the spot, and engaging in punitive measures against workers trying to organize a strike.
