From a factory in Bangladesh to a Walmart store near you - the story of a $5.97 t-shirt. This video takes a look at Walmart's history of worker mistreatment - including below federal poverty level wages, intimidation and poor health and safety standards. We must fight for dignity, health and safety, freedom of association and collective bargaining to stop Walmart's global race to the bottom.

I mean honestly, I think most of us knew this. The customers that usually shop there are also broke. The workers, shoppers, and makers. We are all slaves to the 1%.

Do not count on any inventory count being accurate in ANY WALMART, because they do not know how to do INVENTORY...

Walmart streamlined supply chain management by constructing communication and relationship networks with suppliers to improve material flow with lower inventories. The network of global suppliers, warehouses, and retail stores has been described as behaving almost like a single firm.
Rdawg 36 (1 year ago)
Well this informed me about Wal-Mart's employee wages, but almost nothing about its supply chain as a collective group.

what should be illegal is this video. Another desperate union video. I work for Walmart logistics and 90% of our 160ish US warehouses are Walmart owned not 3rd party (AS the video suggest). the DC where I work average pay is 19.00 per hour. Another lying union video taking selective data to promote a lie. Also, the same shirt sold in Target, Sears, and Old Navy. Where is the criticism? None -- double standard.

Anyway this is all BS to push there way into making a boat load of money in the largest retail chain in the world. Unions are a huge money maker and put their money into political pockets . Now the stores are minimum wage jobs. Hell they are retirement jobs for older people or starter jobs for kids !!! I mean DAMN those are not skilled trade or college educated jobs in the store chains!!!!if you want to make more money and more hours then move up in the world for gods sake !!! People in the stores like the kids and the welfare cases that are complaining want to make $20 - $30 an hour and work 28 hrs a week with full benifits and retirement plan !!!! It be great to if they can keep their food stamps and WIC and Obama free cell phone while getting all this too... Those jobs are starter jobs or for elderly not high paying careers !!!!!!! Ugh whining asses I can't stand lazy people who want a lot of something for nothing ...... 😒

We have all the overtime you could want !!! The more you know how to do the more hours you can get !!!! Now I am originally from Detroit Michigan myself and I come from a solid Union family of UAW workers who mostly all lost their jobs because the unions bled the auto plants and offshore companies dry and left no profit for the companies to grow. I myself worked many years under the United Paper and Steel workers union and also the Seafarers international Union and know how well they can work and also the bad sides of them. The bad will outweigh the good every time. Walmart is as close as you can get to perfect without a Union.after Union layoffs due to buy out protests and renegotiations I lost my job at the plant I worked before Walmart and lost my home 2 cars boat camper I mean everything !!!! In less than a 30 minute warning that they gave us !!! No work for 8 months !! Walmart paid ALL my bills up to date and gave us groceries and other assistance and as much overtime I wanted

Such awful comments on a disgusting, global problem. I guess it is all about the money. Greed is an ugly plague. The worse part is that not enough "educated" Americans care what it really means when they save a buck, and don't mind that it's at the expense of those less able to get out of their familial situations. The workers of Walmart (including the vendors' workers) are just people who want the rights that everyone else are afforded, and take for granted.

A lot of American made products ship everyday. Don't believe what the unions put out about Walmart. Video is full of lies. Thanks for stopping by anyway, it is the best supply chain in the world.

So according to this Ad .. Walmart can increase minimum wage, hire only College Diploma employees and Pay them $45K - $70K .. oops, 42% of the economy is made up of those who have just a high school diploma or less and ZERO definitive industry skill-set ... Let's do this Walmart ... Pay high wages based on skill-set and keep only essential workers ... give them Health benefits and pay over $45K and fire those who have zero college Degrees. Maybe that will make these dimwits realize that a huge chunk of Walmart workers who make under $30K have almost no skill level for any job market .. except at Walmart. Add in about 14 different self-checkout stations and keep only real College graduates at the other stations so you can pay them $45K and over. Unions are the mafia .... "don't push yourself hard they say .. just join us .. well make you get $30/ hr for just taking calls... " Lazy Bums

US companies try to do business in their own backyard, but Unions get greedy and end up becoming a mafia style takeover. This is why we go overseas. I have seen people without a high school diploma working in a Union making $30 an hour as a secretary. Its crazy.
Ronnie Gene (4 years ago)
Your missing points here. Walmart minimum wage workers are not meant to be careers. They are usually for high school students or retirees looking to get out and do something. Its not up to Walmart or any other US company to perform any upgrades to structures in other countries. Those are the property of that particular company in that country. This video makes no valid points.

This video is full of lies.  I work in a Walmart distribution center and last year made $49k.  Would you call that poor pay?  How about the BlueCross health insurance I have?  Is that not considered a benefit?  How about the paid vacation I receive each year?  Or the sick time? Or the personal time?  Or the great schedule (4 x 10hrs) which means a 3 day weekend each week?  Are these not all benefits?

What walmart does: walmart has mastered the concept of economies of scale. The theory is the larger the order made to its suppliers, the cost per unit will decrease. This contributes to walmart unprecedented buying power over its suppliers. Not only does it increase walmart's buying power with it suppliers, but is encourages suppliers to adjust the way they do business to accommodate walmart ( warehouse relocation, lower prices per order, and the justification of the creation of 3PL companies). It's genius.

This video and most of the comments here are IGNORANCE at its best! I'm getting so sick of the Walmart bashing. Walmart is a corporation that has a right to purchase from the cheapest source, and the fact that it's China or Bangladesh is thanks to BILL CLINTON AND NAFTA! Open your eyes, nobody held a gun to the head of the 6,000 applicants that show up for the 250 jobs available at a new store. A typical store has HUNDREDS of applications on file. Get your facts straight before you make your fancy little anti-Walmart video (and post ignorant comments about it).

Randy Hays (5 years ago)
Walmart purchases the products made by the factories based on agreements with factory owners.  Walmart is not a government agency and therefore does not intend to engage in the civil liberties or politics of those countries.  Bleeding Heart Liberals should protest the governments the own the factories and set standards that keep them, the officials with in the country, in high living standards. Why should a business pay for the factory they do not and can not own.  Would you pay for a Taxi Drivers taxi if it caught fire because you hailed it once to get to the airport.  Be real people. You feel sorry for them, send your money so they can make sure the keep just enough to make a commercial asking for more pity.
Faisol MFC (1 month ago)
Randy Hays you perhaps have no idea how supply chain works. I was the CHRO of the largest vertically integrated garment and textile group in Bangladesh, having 55,000 workers working in 32 factories in my portfolio. Wal-Mart came for an inspection in one of our factories and their visit costed us several thousand dollars, because we had to entertain them with different cuisines, free samples (best quality) for personal use, etc. All on demand. They were supposed to visit the factory at 9:30 am so we had to organise breakfast for their full team. They arrived at 12:45 and so we then had to organise lunch from 5* hotels, which was 55km away from the factory. Upon entering the factory, they refused go through the vehicle security checking, refused to wear the Visitor ID, refused to wear the protective cloths, ear-plugs and masks, even though their visit was related to our factory safety. In the non-smoking meeting room one of the senior official started smoking and told us to arrange an ash-tray for her. I said the whole factory (established on 45 acres of land) is non-smoking zone. She just laughed and said, “We are Wal-Mart”. They behaved we are their slave and they are our master. Lastly, they bargained for 3 cents and took their order to Pakistan because they saw some labourers were walking from one shed to another (for a work-related reason of course) and they commented, “these workers are wasting their time walking here and there and we don’t pay for idle people. While they walk, they don’t make any money for the buyer”.

max johnson (5 years ago)
Walmart has low prices, low standards and consequently, HIGH external costs. Please look up "external costs" before you post some ignorant-ass reply. High external costs are why we don't let companies drill for oil in our aquifers. High external costs are why we don't allow companies to import lead-filled baby formula from China. High external costs are why prevent corporations in this country from employing children. You don't pay much directly for Walmart products, but you DO pay a great deal indirectly for them. The regular patron of Walmart who wears an American flag t-shirt across their chest ought to be ashamed. Walmart is in the business of cannibalizing American companies and workers. And you know what? It's not the company. It's the system that created the company. I love capitalism. But this is not the capitalism envision in Wealth of Nations. This is the reemergence of a hideous all-consuming monster that has not reared its horrible head in this country, to this degree, for over a century. The only sword that can pierce it it is that of simple, pointed, smart, fair and comprehensive regulation reform. That is tough. It means the government needs to have smart civil servants–smarter than those working for corporations, and many times more nimble–for the government of the United States is a slow-acting giant. This is always a losing battle. It will forever be. But the small victories in this fight are what make this country worth living in. Before you argue with my beautifully articulated, nuanced point; please consider this: that I am smarter and much better informed than you. If you plan to mention the words "whiny liberal", please preemptively smash your typing fingers with a rock.

Efficiency is how we are actually becoming a better world.  I champion Wal-mart.  You sir are a waste of energy.  Any and all products you have purchased, got in your feeble hands because companies like Wal-mart and Toyota paved the way for the rest of the world to do it better and cheaper.  Again grow up.

I'm genuinely surprised you went to college and you can't wrap your head around this simple fact. Try working there at any job but general manager or corporate. And you LOVE Walmart lol... so who's really the "little bitch" here?
Bermuda Tim (5 years ago)
If I were to guess, you probably hold some kind of management position somewhere within Wal-Mart's chain of command.  I'll give you this, Wal-Mart did NOT knock on doors to recruit people to apply....I agree.  However, that said, have you ever been in a small to medium sized town when Wal-Mart comes in to set up shop?  First of all it likes to set up just outside whatever city or town limit it has come to prey upon.  Wal-Mart never buys the structure it sets up in....it leases its store fronts.  This makes it easy for Wal-Mart to pull up stakes once the surrounding area and local downtown Mom and Pop operations have been devastated.  There are a lot of "before and after" examples of what Wal-Mart has done to local communities.  When Wal-Mart comes in to set up a new store, it certainly DOES reach out to the community so yeah, it does recruit.  There are a lot of smoke and mirrors involved but Wal-Mart has perfected the art of the shell game.  A brand new Wal-Mart will stretch its tentacles throughout a county hiring en mass because Wal-Mart KNOWS that many will leave when the truth becomes known.....so yeah, it does recruit and it does LIE about conditions of working there.  How do I know?  Like I said, a Wal-Mart came to my town and held a HUGE RECRUITING drive with all the bells and whistles.   I was not so much promised full benefits but they were heavily implied.  I laughed in their faces because I don't need them BUT, I did see where this parasite of an entity played with the fears and hopes of other hopefuls with families to support.......So yeah, Wal-Mart DOES directly recruit and it does bullshit the hopeful, especially in the beginning before its true character comes out of the closet.

Aaron Arce (5 years ago)
So, if you see a person getting murdered are you not responsible to report or do something about it? As a major company they can say we will not do business with your company until its buildings are up to code. Especially turning a 1.7 billion dollar profit? come on is it really that important the Walton kids remain a top of the Forbes billionaire list? So if you are working and something falls on you should it be the fault of the person you work for or just your own?  If that happened first thing would be people suing.

Sam with great advise of his wife let all employees share the profits. I'm sure that's gone now. Check out some of the other Walmart videos on here it will boggle the mind that they are getting away with so much.
