Statement by Making Change at Walmart on the Department of Labor’s Decision on Walmart’s Overtime Violations

Below is the statement issued today by Making Change at Walmart in response to the Department of Labor’s decision that Walmart will pay “$4.8 million in back wages and damages to more than 4,500 employees nationwide for unpaid overtime.

The Making Change at Walmart campaign hears from Walmart associates every day who say there are serious problems in their stores with working conditions, pay and hours. The fines Walmart must pay for its overtime violations are just another side effect of the company’s growth at any cost strategy. Walmart’s top executives and the Walton heirs who own a majority of the company have shown they are willing to break the law and harm workers in the name of more profits.
