Franklin Walmart Hold Food Drive for its Employees
FRANKLIN -- From employee strikes to public outrage over Thanksgiving Day hours, Walmart has made a lot of negative headlines recently. Now 'employee food drives' are taking the spotlight.
"A lot of associates can't even afford to buy a small turkey," Ricki Hahn, a seven-year Butler Twp. Walmart associate, said on Wednesday.
A picture from a Walmart in Canton, Ohio, recently went viral. The rubber bins in the photo read, "Please donate food items here so associates in need can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner."
"It has to happen and it's not just at that Walmart. It's at multiple Walmarts," five-year Walmart employee Scott Stringer.
The Franklin location confirmed to us that they, too, are collecting food donations for their employees.
Stringer makes $9.30 per hour at the Butler Township Walmart, and organized a 'fare wage and respect' strike on Monday. He calls the internal food drives heartwarming yet tragic.
"A company that's making $17 billion in profits should allow us to afford our own Thanksgiving dinner," Stringer added.
But thousands of employees won't be having a turkey day dinner at all. Scott and his wife, Ricki, are scheduled to come into work at 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
"That effectively cuts Thanksgiving out for us. I don't get to see my sisters, my brothers, my dad," Scott explained.
A representative from Walmart tells us the food drives are an 'act of kindness', and although not orchestrated by the company, they are supported.
The chain's CEO recently estimated that half its workers make less than $25,000 a year.
