OUR Walmart Statement on CEO Change

Posted by on Nov 25, 2013 in Press Releases, Walmart Watch Blog | 36 Comments

In response to Walmart’s announcement today that Doug McMillon will succeed Mike Duke as CEO of the company, Walmart worker and OUR Walmart member Tiffany Beroid released the statement below. Tiffany works at the Laurel, MD store and has worked at Walmart for about two years. She is one of as many as 825,000 Walmart workers who are paid less than $25,000 a year.

“Walmart has been heading in the wrong direction, and it’s a testament to the pressure the company is feeling that they’re changing leadership at this moment.

“We’re happy to see Mr. McMillon acknowledge the hard work of associates in his statement this morning, and we hope that this appreciation translates into improving jobs for Walmart workers. Americans nationwide are looking to Walmart to improve jobs and strengthen our economy, and Mr. McMillon has an opportunity to be a leader in moving Walmart in the right direction, not just in offering more empty promises. We sincerely hope that Mr. McMillon will answer the country’s calls for Walmart to publicly commit to paying $25,000 a year, providing full-time work and ending its illegal retaliation against its own employees.”

    Duke was 63 years old and a multimillionaire. Not sure how you can take credit for getting rid of him. I would not expect many changes. The market sets the wages. Over 5,000,000 people applied to fill the 500,000 jobs at Wal-Mart last year. As long as an employee has 10 people standing behind him willing to work for his rate, they will not change, Your millions of your members dues has had very little affect. This is basic economics. Under Obama, this is never going to change. Obama has held the country back. Businesses will not expand or hire. Hopefully after the midterm elections, businesses will get some confidence. Remember, if you like your plan, you an keep your plan, PERIOD.

        When Obama’s term ends and Hillary is in office your head will probably explode. Then our secret socialist takeover will reach fruition. Rejoice comrades for we are almost there, even then Pope has joined our ranks. Hehe

        You know that isn’t true. If you click on the name, you can see it isn’t me. Looks like the big Black Friday events were a huge bust. Very few actual employees.

        I found a article that disproves ALL of your above statements. Let it be my rebuttal. Since there is no point in retyping it in the comments section here. http://tinyurl.com/mwg3a4t

        The statement “Feel free to disprove anything I said.” In no way validates your above assertions. An example of the same logic can be seen in the following statement “If you can’t prove Santa Claus does not exist, then he must exist.” References and sources would be a better way of backing your argument. Otherwise (from an objective point of view) they’re just options and baseless figures. Just saying.

        Didn’t come from me. Notice if you click on the name, it doesn’t go to me like this one does. More foolishness from the thugs.
