Hearing Shines Light on Why Walmart Doesn’t Share NY’s Values
New York- Today, current and former Walmart employees bravely testified before the City Council at a hearing that focused on Walmart’s long history of exploiting and mistreating workers, while creating dangerous and harmful work environments for its employees. The workers traveled to New York from all over the country and offered testimony about their experiences working for the Arkansas based mega-store – including the lack of bathroom breaks and the culture of fear management creates. Joining the current and former workers were human and worker rights groups, along with academics, discussed why Walmart is different from other chains, and why Walmart will be bad for New York, especially small businesses.
