Wal-Mart Says Critical Report on Warehouse Workers Distorts Facts

Los Angeles Times (06/06/12) Marc Lifsher

A critical report by the National Employment Law Project distorts facts about how Wal-Mart Stores Inc. runs its distribution network, the company says. The NELP report says the retailer’s use of paid temporary workers is being copied by other retailers, driving down pay and benefits for U.S. warehouse workers. Wal-Mart spokesperson Dan Fogelman said that nearly all of the company’s logistics centers in the U.S. are owned and operated by Wal-Mart and are not operated by third-party logistics contractors. Wal-Mart expects all its contractors and subcontractors “to comply with all applicable laws” related to pay, safety, and other areas, Fogleman said.
