The 2017 Expose Walmart tour is a 22 state, 30+ city cross-country tour that will expose the many real stories of Walmart’s low wages, poor benefits, taxpayer-subsidized costs, and other negative community impacts. The tour kicks off in Phoenix, AZ on May 15th and ends at Walmart’s annual shareholder meeting in Fayetteville, AR on June 2nd. The tour will feature American workers, Walmart employees, community groups, elected officials, and leaders coming together to propose real solutions to the ‘Walmart-ization’ that is hurting our economy, costing taxpayers, and destroying our jobs.
