Working mothers at Walmart staged a series of strikes on Wednesday in
protest over wages and conditions at the world’s largest retailer, as a
new report claims the company’s top executives received $104m in
taxpayer subsidies over a six-year period.
The majority of mothers working at Walmart, which drew a $16bn profit last year, earn less than $25,000 a year
How dare these proles stand up against their betters, especially morally…uh, what?
Since 2009, Walmart has ducked $104 million in taxes
by exploiting a tax loophole around bonus payments to just eight top
executives, according to a new report from the Institute for Policy
Studies (IPS) and Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF).
