Tell Wal-Mart to Stop Discriminating Against Women

Target: President & CEO Lee Scott
Sponsor:
Wal-Mart Watch

Wal-Mart currently faces the largest class-action sex discrimination lawsuit in American history.

Plaintiffs in the Dukes v. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. case have provided evidence that women working in Wal-Mart stores are paid less than their male counterparts for comparable work in every region of the country and in most job categories. What’s worse, data show that the pay gap between men and women gets worse over time, and that women get promoted to management roles at Wal-Mart at a much slower rate than men

When Wal-Mart employees attempt to stand up for themselves and try to form a union, they face threats, propaganda, discrimination, intimidation, and even firings.

PETITIONS - WORKERS RIGHTS August 08, 2005 7:38 PM

Nicaraguan Workers demand reinstatement and backpay! The U.S. based owner Craig Miller has already fired 48 members of the independent union, refused to pay into national healthcare and continually denies workers their due salaries and vacation time.
