2017 Expose Walmart Tour
May 20, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Athens 4 Everyone sponsored event: Show solidarity with workers organizing for a better life when the 2017 Expose Walmart Tour makes a stop in Athens!
The 2017 Expose Walmart tour is a 22-state, 30-city cross-country tour that will expose the many real stories of Walmart’s low wages, poor benefits, taxpayer-subsidies, and other negative community impacts. The tour kicks off in Phoenix on May 15th and ends at Walmart’s annual shareholder meeting in Fayetteville, AR on June 2nd. The tour will feature American workers, Walmart employees, community groups, elected officials, and leaders coming together to propose real solutions to the ‘Walmart-ization’ that is hurting our economy, costing taxpayers, and destroying our jobs.
The 2017 Expose Walmart Tour is organized by Making Change at Walmart and The United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW), and is supported by the AFL-CIO. http://changewalmart.org/
