Today, Walmart workers who are members of the Organization United for Respect at Walmart (OUR Walmart) are attending Yahoo’s annual shareholders meeting to draw attention to Yahoo CEO and Walmart board member Marissa Mayer’s refusal to speak out against Walmart’s illegal attempts to retaliate against workers who speak out for positive change.
What’s worse, it looks like Mayer is doubling-down on her ties to Walmart. Today, she’s nominating former Walmart CEO Lee Scott—who played a key role in limiting internal investigations related to Walmart’s alleged bribery of foreign officials—to join the board of Yahoo.
It’s bad enough that Mayer won’t stand up for workers’ rights, but now she’s spreading Walmart’s business model to the tech world. Please sign a petition calling on Mayer to stand up for workers’ rights or step down from Walmart’s board.
