About Respect DC and the Living Wages Healthy Communities Coalition: "We are working to educate community members about Walmart’s checkered track record of paying poverty-level wages, forcing competitors to close, causing a net loss of jobs, breaking its promises, and multiple lawsuits alleging that the company discriminates against female employees and engages in wage theft, including the the largest sex discrimination class action in U.S history.
"We want to ensure that no Walmart is built here unless the company shows that it respects DC by agreeing to an enforceable community benefits agreement guaranteeing that it will treat its workers with dignity, provide full-time living wage jobs with affordable health and retirement benefits, and help our neighborhoods improve their economic standing and quality of life."
