Did you know that Walmart:
-Costs our nation an estimated $ 1 billion or more per year for publicly- subsidized health care for Walmart workers
-Pays an average of $8.81 hourly wage to sales associates
-killed 196,000 jobs between 2001 and 2006 as a result of Walmart’s imports from China
-Made $408.2 billion as revenue in 2010 as the number one Fortune 100 company
BUT, there is hope! In Massachusetts the community fought back and stopped two Walmarts from opening. Here in Oregon neighborhoods are beginning to organize against the Walmart invasion. Come and find out what is going on locally and what to do about it.
