Walmart moms protest shareholdersA group of Walmart workers will present demands for better pay and benefits to management at the company’s annual shareholder meeting in Bentonville, Arkansas on Friday, the activist group OUR Walmart said in a statement.

The move comes after a week of rallies across the country by labor activists, union representatives, and workers in cities including Chicago, Dayton, Ohio and Baton Rouge, La.


In Phoenix, workers protested at the home of a member of the Walton family, which owns Walmart. The workers accuse the family of benefiting from Walmart's use of tax breaks and subsidies to profit at the expense of employees receiving food stamps.

While the demonstrators aim to call attention to the struggles of the “working poor,” they are focusing on working mothers who are significant percentage of Walmart workers.
