In January Walmart's CEO announced changes to provide more transparency in scheduling and offer part time workers the opportunity to get the hours they so desperately need. Unfortunately, workers report that three months later Walmart has yet to make good on its promise to change.The result has been understaffed and under stocked stores, as reported recently by the New York Times and others.
Join community and faith leaders, supporters, and OUR Walmart members as we call on Walmart to make changes so associates can get the hours they need.
