The worlds largest grocery retailer, Wal-Mart has been fairing well in this fragile economy where consumers seek out lower prices. GLBT employees among other groups of workers at Wal-Mart's stores are not being given the fair end of the deal.
While Wal-Mart had been seen as LGBT supportive in the past, they have more recently caved into demands by the anti-gay religious right as evidenced by a Wal-Mart Watch report on GLBT policies at the mega-chain.
- Wal-Mart no longer funds GLBT groups; stating that "they do not wish to support or oppose highly controversial issues."
- No same-sex Partner Benefits ie: healthcare, and other benefits.
- Gender identity/expression not included in non-discrimination policy.
Take action by contacting Wal-Mart to add protections for gender variant people.
