Standing Up To Walmart
My name is Angela Williamson, and last week I was fired by Walmart.
The company claimed that I had taken too many sick days, even though my absences for my own illness and to care for my ailing grandmother had been approved by my manager.
Unfortunately I am not alone. Walmart also just fired one other worker and disciplined a third, giving him his final warning. It turns out, we all have one thing in common – we’ve been speaking out publicly about uniting our co-workers across the country for fair wages, full time hours and most of all, respect and dignity at Walmart - America’s largest private employer.
While I am told I am being fired for taking time off to care for my sick grandmother, CEO Mike Duke and Chairman Rob Walton still have their jobs despite reports of their involvement in a reported bribery scandal and a high-level executive cover-up of the incident.1
It’s time to put an end to Walmart’s double standard.
Sign the petition below and tell Walmart you've had enough of their double standards that penalize workers and protect CEOs.
I will present the petition at Walmart's shareholder meeting on Friday.
