Where: Council on Foreign Relations, Harold Pratt House, 58 East 68th Street, New York, New York 10065
Walmart CEO Mike Duke is visiting NYC on Tuesday, Dec. 11 to give a speech for the Council on Foreign Relations entitled “The Responsibility to Lead” – talking about women’s economic empowerment, food security & the global middle class.
That’s ironic, since Walmart represents the epitome of corporate greed: from use of sweatshop labor, to the poverty wages it pays associates, to discrimination, to illegal retaliation against workers who organize. Mike Duke has no right to speak about the “global middle class”, and it’s time we taught him the meaning of responsibility!
