Walmart Please Let Your employees have Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve Off From Work

Walmart FYI - Thanksgiving and Christmas are some of America’s most cherished family holidays -- a day to spend with friends, family, and loved ones. But, in pursuit of the almighty dollar, some retailers open their stores on Thanksgiving and Christmas, forcing many of their employees to work. We know that companies can support their bottom line without sacrificing their employees’ well being. Many chain stores do well and are NOT open on Thanksgiving and Christmas. For Example Sam's Club owned and operated by Walmart is closed on Black Fridany this year 2017. as a Loyal Walmart associate of 3 +  years I  believe retail workers at big box stores deserve a day to spend with family. Please urge Walmart, to put people over profits and refuse to open their doors on Thanksgiving the 24th of November and Christmas, December 25. and instead let employees have some time away from the frantic shopping season to spend with their children, Family, Friends, partners and loved ones. I personally believe that employees who who are less stressed at work due to the holidays in turn have better customer service and then that should make happier customers and repeat customers. Sam Walton Said "The Customer Comes First' As someone who cares about family and community, I urge you to give your employees the day off on Thanksgiving and Christmas  Walmart made in fiscal year 2016  revenue of $482.1 billion Walmart made in fiscal year 2017 revenue of $485.9 billion, Walmart made in fiscal year  2018 revenue of 500.3 Billion Sam Walton would have said "There is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else"   Thank you, Adam Farris   Closed for the Holidays

WALMART - Require campers to register for over-night parking to stop panhandlers! *VIDEOS*

One thing you will find in every Walmart across the country are campers parking over-night. This is a perfectly good practice that protects people and gives them a place to stay over-night if needed. HOWEVER.. There is an epidemic right now too at Walmart's around the country that began 2 years ago without many noticing! It seems that PANHANDLERS are taking advantage of Walmart and customers who shop there by using Walmart's to "Run Out Of Gas".. In the last 5 days in IRON MOUNTAIN, MICHIGAN there have been 4 campers that "ran out of gas" right at Walmart! Yesterday while live streaming these fake panhandlers on Facebook, Walmart informed me that I was the problem and asked me to leave because I was filming them. They said I wasn't helping in any way and "they" didn't need my help! It appears the management of this store never see's these panhandlers unless I am live streaming. In my opinion, Walmart is enabling these people.. 2 years ago I filmed this family who is still out panhandling now, how long will we let this continue? Panhandling Family Busted At Walmart In 2016 Scamming Walmart Panhandlers Drive Big RV - 2017 PANHANDLER DRIVES AWAY RECKLESSLY WITH CHILDREN IN CAMPER - June 24, 2018 WALMART PANHANDLER TODAY PULLING A CAMPER! "YOU CAN'T FILM ME"! - June 25, 2018 Panhandler Arrested, Camper Towed Away At Iron Mountain, Michigan WALMART - June 27, 2018 THIS IS ORGANIZED PANHANDLING USING WALMART STORES ACROSS THE COUNTRY! How can they solve this PROBLEM? It's really quite simple.. Walmart should charge people a ONE TIME REGISTRATION FEE and give people numbers/cards so when they arrive (or online) they can "check in" at any Walmart to stay over-night. In the case of these PANHANDLERS, should they be caught doing it anywhere in the country.. They can be BANNED from staying at Walmart's. Walmart shouldn't stop this from happening just because of a few bad apples and they have the power to fix this issue today! Walmart shouldn't blame the people who live here who are tired of seeing panhandlers using campers at Walmart to take advantage of the customers!

What the Fork Are You Doing With Your Produce, Walmart?

Despite living in the richest country in the world, 48 million Americans still don’t know where their next meal will come from. That means a staggering 19 percent of households with children are food insecure. Part of the problem is the prohibitively high price of produce. Many low income American families simply can’t afford fresh fruits and vegetables. Yet, we throw away nearly 26% of all produce before it even reaches the grocery store due mostly to cosmetic standards from large grocers that dictate exactly how fruits and veggies should look. If produce fails to make the grade for size, shape, or color, retailers deem it "ugly" and refuse to sell it in their stores. Billions of pounds of good, healthy produce goes uneaten because it’s not pretty! But this food is perfectly edible. Culinary nutritionist Stefanie Sacks, author of What the Fork Are You Eating? and co-starter of this petition, confirms that the “uglies” are equally as nutritious as any produce you get in the store, and, in fact, smaller produce can actually have more taste! I’m Jordan Figueiredo, a solid waste specialist, and founder of Together with Stefanie and with the support of more than 111,000 signers, we were successful in petitioning Whole Foods Market to sell ugly produce. Now we are asking you to call on Walmart to join the movement against food waste by agreeing to sell cosmetically “less than perfect” produce. We want Walmart to combat food waste by marketing ugly produce with an educational and fun campaign like the French supermarket giant Intermarche did with its “Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables Campaign.” Stores in Europe, Australia, and Canada have seen success selling not quite "perfect" produce, offering it at an average of 30% off, and it has increased store traffic and total sales. In the U.S. Raley's has completed a successful pilot selling ugly produce, Giant Eagle has just started a pilot and Whole Foods will start one soon. With over 4,200 U.S. stores, we are asking Walmart, one of America’s largest retailers, to do something simple, effective and good for the retailers’ and customers’ bottom line. Walmart can help out its customers who cannot afford as much as they used to and their employees who are offered such low wages that they depend on food stamps. This is truly low-hanging fruit in terms of its environmental and social benefits. One out of six Americans is food insecure, and more than four out of five is produce-deficient. With statistics like this, it is simply irresponsible to encourage waste of good, healthy and perfectly edible food. Join the “ugly fruit and veg revolution” and let’s ask Walmart to be part of the solution, not the problem. Tell them to add the “uglies” to their store aisles so you can save money, fight hunger and help the environment all in one. The solution might look ugly, but the result will be something beautiful. #WhatTheFork
