While Walmart refuses to raise its $11 minimum wage, Alice Walton had no problem purchasing a $500 million private art collection, buying a $25 million 2-floor Park Avenue condo with 52 windows and acquiring a $22 million 4,400-acre Texas ranch. Something is very wrong here.

Walton family wealth in 2021: $228 billion

Walmart minimum wage in 2021: $11 an hour
It is a moral outrage that the richest family in America pays workers at Walmart starvation wages.
Two years ago, Amazon raised their minimum wage to $15 an hour. Today, Target raised their minimum wage to $15 an hour. Now Walmart, owned by the wealthiest family in America, must do the same. We must eliminate starvation wages in America.

Walmart, our largest employer, is owned by the Waltons, the wealthiest family in America, who are worth nearly $200 billion. Unbelievably, in the last 3 years the family's wealth has gone up by over $70 billion. They can more than afford to pay all their workers at least $15/hr.
