The majority of Walmart warehouse workers are hired through temp agencies, paid low wages, receive no benefits, and have no job security. They routinely lift heavy boxes – up to 200-pounds – from shipping containers on a piece rate system or for minimum wage for hours and days on end – in some cases 362 days a year. Workers encounter inhumane work speeds, moving up to 450 boxes per hour by hand, pollutants, high temperatures, little ventilation and intense retaliation if they complain about the conditions. Serious injuries on the job are common. For more info, check out Warehouse Workers United and Warehouse Workers for Justice.

Walmart keeps standards low to give YOU low prices.
We’re Greedy. Find our competitors paying their employees less? We’ll match them, guaranteed.
We Exploit Workers. We gladly ignore abuses at our manufacturing and warehouse facilities. We also retaliate against workers when they speak up! :-)
