Who are the 1%? The Waltons—Walmart heirs—the Richest Family in America

Alice Walton, the heiress to the Walmart fortune, is opening a museum this Friday, November 11th in Bentonville, Arkansas.  The museum was funded to the tune of $1.2 billion by the Walton Family Foundation.

At the same time, Walmart, (of which the Walton’s own 48% control) just slashed health care for hundreds of thousands of workers. Many of these workers were already living below the poverty level.

 

Come hear Walmart Workers talk about their struggle against the 1% and for respect at Walmart

They’re up against the largest corporation in the world.  But Walmart’s size also presents an opportunity.   If we can change Walmart, we can change America. We can turn 1.4 million Walmart jobs into good jobs that support families and communities—the 99%!   

 

WHEN: Friday, November 11, 2011 TIME: 4pm

LOCATION: Zuccotti Park
