What Ashton Kutcher Had to Say About Walmart

Ask President Obama to meet with Walmart workers to hear their stories first-hand.

Walmart associates all over the United States have been speaking up for their rights on the job, asking Walmart to pay a living wage and treat them with respect. Today, actor and prolific tweeter Ashton Kutcher weighed in on Twitter, addressing the food collection at a Canton, Ohio, store held for fellow associates in need:

 

Walmart responded, saying they were proud of their Canton associates for the "act of human kindness," but they missed the point, which Kutcher made clear. If a company makes billions of dollars in profits each year, it can afford to pay its workers a living wage so they can afford to feed their families.
