Walmart, SEIU, and CAP together endorsed Obamacare’s employer mandate and “shared responsibility” provisions, which they called “important proposals that should be included in the current efforts to reform our nation’s health-care system.” This unholy alliance was forged out of Walmart’s desperation and political expediency.
Providing cover for the White House on Obamacare bought Walmart one day of goodwill theater. But SEIU and Soros operatives have promoted a no-holds-barred campaign against Walmart for decades. The union funded an incendiary “Walmart Watch” website with at least $1 million in rank-and-file-employee dues. Walmart foolishly contributed between $500,000 and $999,999 to Podesta and his Soros-backed Center for American Progress. But Soros’s MoveOn hit team is now instigating the Black Friday strikes online.
Similar corporate outreach to the Congressional Black Caucus brought rebukes from, you guessed it, SEIU leaders, who blasted Walmart for “undermining standards for all American workers.”
