This is just so sad I don’t even know where to start:
Walmart’s first response to the garment factory fire that killed more than 100 workers in Bangladesh was to deny that any Walmart clothes were made in the factory. Then clothes from Walmart’s Faded Glory brand were found in the factory, so Walmart switched to claiming that it had stopped doing business with that company but a rogue supplier had subcontracted to the factory, so really, Walmart had nothing to do with it. But it turns out it wasn’t one rogue supplier subcontracting to a factory Walmart had stopped doing business with. Five different Walmart suppliers were doing business with the Tazreen factory, accounting for five of its 14 production lines in September, documents show.
Just keep the above in mind as you read news reports about Walmart workers across the United States asking for better wages and benefits. IMHO if Walmart could get away with paying US-based workers $1/hour they would. They don’t care about the employees of their suppliers nor their employees here. It is as simple as that, their actions speak for themselves.
