|New Report Exposes Career Barriers for Walmart Associates|
Calls on the industry leader to create hourly careers for its employees
Washington, D.C. – As Walmart readies to open stores in New York City, Washington, DC, and other urban markets, the retail giant has come under heightened scrutiny for its role in dragging down labor standards and keeping middle class life out of reach for so many working families. Today, American Rights at Work releases a hard-hitting report exposing the barriers to career development at the country’s most powerful retailer, and making the case for a new way of doing business.
The report shows that, rather than finding opportunities for professional growth, Walmart associates are faced with a cap on wages, ever-changing schedules, expensive benefits, and an arbitrary discipline system. And given the limited number of managerial positions, most employees must develop a career as an associate if they want to stay with the company. Unfortunately, thanks to Walmart’s current policies, that’s an option that most of the company’s employees simply can’t afford.
