Love Mom Not Walmart

Thousands of Americans are joining the Love Mom, Not Wal-Mart campaign and pledging to purchase their Mother’s Day gifts from companies that treat our nation’s mothers and all women with fairness and respect. Wal-Mart - the largest private sector employer of women in the United States, with over 700,000 female employees - has systemically discriminated against women, and it must stop.

You can sign the pledge on-line. (http://www.wakeupwalmart.com/mom/pledge.html) As a special Mother's Day treat, the Wake-Up Wal -Mart campaign will be mailing the "Mother of All Mother's Day Cards" to Lee Scott, CEO of Wal-Mart, Inc. The card will ask Lee Scott to do the right thing for all of our Mothers and end Wal-Mart's pattern of discrimination against women.

This is one of the first efforts in the UFCW's Wake-Up Wal-Mart campaign.
