This top 10 list of disturbing facts about the people of walmart you probably didn't know will leave you shocked at what's really happening behind the scenes of walmart!

Walmart is as Rich as a Country If Walmart were a country it would be in the list of the top 30 richest countries in the world! In fact, in the past few years, Walmart would have been on the list as numbers 28 and 25. It is said that Walmart could actually destroy several countries around the world. The financial capability of Walmart would be right up there on the list with countries like Turkey, Switzerland and the Netherlands. In 2012 Walmart basked in a shocking $444 billion in sales. This is $20 billion more than Australia’s yearly Gross Domestic Product. Walmart makes about $1.8 million in sales every single hour, which is more than most people earn in a lifetime. 9.) Sales Aren’t Always Sales Walmart is great for finding some good deals, and as they always advertise, they always have low prices. Many locations will also price match! However, Walmart tends to lie about many of their sales prices. Research has shown that many times Walmart actually sells things at the recommended retail price. But to trick people into believing it is a sale, they put a sale sticker around the item with the regular price. This trick makes you think you are getting something on sale but in reality customers are not saving any money by buying the item at Walmart. However, it is not just Walmart that plays into this trick. Many major retail chains do this and you just have to be an educated consumer and not fall into their trap!!! The other day I saw a product on sale and it was a 2 cent price drop. 8.) Low Wages Walmart is known for paying some of the lowest wages in the US, sometimes even under minimum wage. Walmart uses every trick in the book to keep costs low, and they are professionals. Allegedly they have assisted illegal immigrants in crossing the border and only allow legal employees to work 32 hours per week so they can't receive full-time employee benefits. How they help people cross the border I have no idea. Does Walmart have Coyotes? Or pay off border patrol? Or build tunnels? They may be involved in all kinds of shenanigans we don’t know about. The more you learn about the extensive reach of corporations, the scarier everything gets. Walmart is also known to intentionally only pay workers minimum wage so the employees have to take advantage of government assistance programs. Therefore, Walmart saves money on both their employees' salaries and does not have to provide them with any benefits. In a report published by the House Committee of Education and Welfare, they estimated that if a Walmart had around 200 employees, they would use $420,750 of federal taxpayers money per year, or over $2 thousand per employee! Walmart obviously has more than enough money to properly pay their employees but choose not to and use the system to their advantage. On top of this, there have also been lawsuits against Walmart that stated they did not pay low wages to employees at all. As of December 2002, 39 class action lawsuits in 30 states were filed against the corporation claiming tens of millions of dollars in back pay owed to hundreds of thousands of employees. These lawsuits included instances of Walmart forcing employees to work through breaks, forcing employees to work off the clock, and even deleting hours from employees’ time sheets without their knowledge. 7.) Illegally Firing Workers If you do a google search on Walmart firing their workers illegally, you will run into a lot of articles talking about their lawsuits. Walmart employees are often fired for protesting or speaking up about their low wages. In 2014, Walmart fired about 19 employees who were protesting for better working conditions. No protesting allowed!! There have also been other cases, such as in 2013 when Walmart employees protested for organization. Workers then backed by the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) planned to bus into Bentonville, Arkansas, to crash the company’s 2013 shareholder meeting. Walmart’s corporate office got wind of the “Ride for Respect” plan and flew into action by monitoring activists’ social media activity Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

It's interesting that ppl want cages and a wall to stop immigration, but never advocate punishment for all of the businesses that profit from it.

Wal-Mart employ people with cero abilities, many are disable, and many wouldn't get a job in any other place, low wages are for people with cero abilities. If you want to get better salary, learn how to do something that can get well paid

After working at Walmart for a year (thankfully no more) let's confirm or deny these real quick. Sales aren't always sales - Can't confirm or deny. I haven't seen that in my experience but I do know we would make displays of items that weren't on sale to trick the customer into thinking since it's on display it must be on sale. Low wages - First of all, management actually gets pissed if you don't take your breaks or lunch so that one made no sense. Yes, you get paid minimum wage like 99% of retail jobs. No one is expecting 6 figures to put the stuff on the shelves but you do get full time benefits. I always got 37.5 hours a week and no arguments. However, there were times where I was definitely shorted on my pay. Illegally firing workers - I can't speak for Walmart in the US but in Canada, it's next to impossible to get fired. Walmart always needs workers but no one wants to work there for pretty obvious reasons. I've seen people not show up for multiple shifts, go home early, and straight up not do anything and no consequences. Child Labor - Yeah, probably true, sadly. Locking employees inside - Gonna go out and say this is 100% not true and would never happen in Canada. At the walmart I was at, if you even got a papercut, management would ask if you're alright and write up a report and everything. They take injuries pretty seriously as an elderly worker fell and right away she got taken to hospital. Discrimination against women - HELL NO. Most MANAGERS are WOMEN. Most higher ups are women too. Seriously, the store I worked at was mainly run by women. Stealing Wages - Again, I have experience with them shorting me but never has anyone been forced to work through breaks. They will force you to take your break. Breaking Laws - Yeah probably. Discrimination against disabled - Lots of disabled people are hired at Walmart and all are treated with the respect they deserve. I have never seen any discrimination against them by other employees. This one is not true.

You forgot the part where they were taking out life insurance policies on their own employees. So their employees were slaves.
Buffalo Rideshare (4 months ago)
This is accurate but Walmart is bonafide fucking over management and associates alike on annual raises compared to the merit and tier raise structure that was prior held. One could map out exactly where they would be pay wise in 5 years. It was not a lot by lucrative standards but it was something if consistent. It will literally take me 12 years to make an hour what I would and had been achieving over 5 years. This all changed 3 April's ago when they abolished annual anniversary dates for raises. Now we all get fucked equally every April. I have cut back my time there drastically and hustle elsewhere now.

A while back, I also remember reading a story about a woman who found out that Walmart had taken out a life insurance policy on her husband, as he had been their employee. No one knew they were doing this and the only reason she found out was because the insurance company accidentally contacted her instead of WalMart. So, WalMart gets life insurance money when their employees die? How is that remotely legal? And I know people worldwide want low prices but they have to stop buying from these companies that use slave or child labor.

in Canada these dickheads closed down profitable stores because the workers sided with a Labour Union and certified these locations..Walmart closing these stores for that reason is a violation of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms..Walton family was also running the Japanese internment camps after WW2 and today they have some deep state connections with FEMA to round up Americans for "reeducation"

I'm sure we can all agree that WalMart is too big, too powerful and has WAY too much political clout. They've run thousands of smaller retail stores out of business. But......we ALLOW it by shopping there. . But, here's the kicker. Most don't know that WalMart is in bed with FEMA and will play a major role in Agenda 21 depopulation and will help the UN troops by arming, feeding those loyal to the CABAL. When SHTF you can be sure your local WalMart store will be converted into a FE MA camp or holding facility.

...further to my earlier comment a lot of these children are taking home the only pay packet that family receives so a lot of meddling can cause far more suffering. Its a deeper problem and needs research for instance people develop at different rates and\or birth NOT registered on time so people might be 14 but are really 16. Nowadays 'children' at 16 can look 12! My friend at School was so obviously prematurely developed. He looked about 20 we were all 14. I know people who have Saturday jobs. Should this be made illegal?
john kean (4 months ago)
Child labouring and slavery very strong words. And always "abroad" . What about the West? There are plenty of children bringing up their siblings because either their parents are too busy working themselves or can't be bothered. Also plenty of adults being overworked to heart-attack stress levels in the big Cities surely that's a kind of slavery and that's on your doostep.

Walmart's prices are not always the lowest any more. In fact, if you shop around to the "lower end" grocery stores, or shop the sales at other stores, you will find much better deals all the time. Example: canned tuna fish (store brand) is .87 per can at Walmart. I just came back from Save-a-Lot, and their regularly priced tuna is .78. Aldi also has a much lower price. I buy a lot of tuna, so it's almost a dollar savings for ten cans. That doesn't sound like a lot, but tuna is not the only thing they charge more for. If you are struggling financially, always check the flyers and sales for great savings. Walmart just brags it has everyday low prices, but that is not good enough anymore with the competition. I can save about $30 per shopping trip at Aldi's over Walmart. That is $60 a month. It's a huge amount for me.

I worked at Walmart and another job. While on lunch they told me to clock in they had to have an important meeting with me. They told me they got a letter from corporate saying to lay off temporary workers. Well when I got hired thinking I was full time. They changed it to part time and didn’t tell me they took my time card n told me to leave. Then when I’d go to Walmart security would follower me like a thief. I’m a Christian and this offended me but I’d go on . And still seen security following me I’m talking 20-30 feet away then when I’d see them they’d disappear. A few minutes later . Their they were. I then told them if they didn’t have a good reason I’d sue all the way up to and included the owners . After that didn’t see them any more

Walmart pays at least the minimum wage since 2017. Walmart cannot possibly pay minimum wage as the the video say and below minimum wage. Make up your mind. In some states $10 per hour is higher than minimum wage. Employers are not required to pay benefits. If you do not want to work there, then do not work there. Different states and countries have different child labor laws. Minors cannot use fork lifts on the job, but can if it is not a job. Is a fork lift dangerous to minors on the job, but not off the job ?

I use to deliver overnight freight to Walmart stores and many occasions I have seen employees having sex in the back I have actually walked in the stock room to get a pallet jack and I interrupt the store manager having sex with one of the cashiers at a super center later I found out the cashier was fired but of course the manager kept his job and I've seen the same manager actually thinking beer in the parking lot while getting a bj yes that's right I seen that as I was backing my truck into the loading dock I've delivered to at least 1500 Walmart stores and I've seen a lot of things that would make your skin crawl
kender3721 (5 months ago)
If you got overtime, they would tell you to go home early and cut your hours to avoid paying you for it. Or to take a longer lunch. I would deal with male managers asking my male coworkers to get something done but telling us women to do it. They would also make people who physical had a hard time lifting things 'help' unload the truck at night. As well as try to make the people who have trouble breathing due to Asama exc go 'help' push carts. The men in my department got paid more then I did even if I had been there longer. Another one of their favorite tricks is to have you work late then come in early the next day. If you work retail. I strongly recommend you look up your local state laws on what can and can not be done. Walmart loves to play on the line because most employees simply don't know that what is being done to them, is illegal.

The Walmart here makes there employees before there shift do exercises and they have to sing the anthem ,also there personal bags get searched when they sign in and when they leave ,I know I wouldnt want people to know what is in my purse .You really should add Sobeys to your list,if you are not a supervisor and a second your not allowed to work over 30 hours ( I m sorry but I think that ,it's only 20 something and not 30) and they try to give maybe 15 hours and they are allways hiring people and if you want to get extra hours in another department they won't let you because you will be making more hours so you can never pay your bills and if you are young and wanted to move out from there parents they can't.If you are a great employee and you hurt yourself they make you go through workers comp insurance company even when you said no ,so you do as they say then when you are better and want your hours back they cut them back to 4or 5 hrs a week this is so dirty of them ,and if you are a very rude person you can work different departments and get more hours ,do you think there's something wrong with this?I have alot of more secrets but I will keep them to my self for now.🤐

A case of the poor enslaving the poor so that they can get cheap stuff. Then the rich get blamed for the ignorance of the people. The U.S. was built by opportunist who have always and are still making the U.S. all that it is. As much as this video might upset people, it's not WalMart that is the problem, it's the mentality of people who buy stuff. U.S. Americans are brainwashed to put personal want above what is right. It's easy to blame the rich for your insatiable greed for more cheap stuff. U.S. Americans are their own worst enemies.

They also are not stocked by anyone who has enen VISITED area where store is. We are living in a lovely tiny village. Our area is most look y agricultural; most coming from what has been described as "sturdy stock.". Yet the majority of clothes that come into our area Walmart are MAJORLY WAY TOO SMALL IN SIZES that you do not find anywhere near avg. size. They also DO NOT take any input from their own employees...evidenced by then no longer carrying (though available in different chains) an object based on either from facts from alternative area (maybe Manhattan??)even when told by store employees that a particular item ALWAYS sold out quickly.

Fact Check: The economy of Australia is a large mixed-market economy, with a GDP of A$1.69 trillion as of 2017. Australia is the second-wealthiest nation in terms of wealth per adult, after Switzerland. Australia's total wealth exceeded $11.4 Trillion June 2018. Even with Conversion Walmarts A610 Billion is not close.

Right at the start we have an issue. She said "SELLS". You do know sells (revenue) and profit are different, right? She uses sells because it is a huge number. I am not saying walmart is the greatest but this misleading on purpose. In 2017 walmart profit was $14.7 billion still a lot of money but not the $444 billion she said. What data did she use to show a country is rich? Everything I find is by per capita, so what is she using? If you took walmarts profit ($14.7 B) and divided by employees (2.1 M) each person would get $7,000. Not bad but then they would not have money to build new stores and employee more people. Yes I am sure they can afford to pay a little more than they do,
