A South Gate, Calif., Walmart employee is calling on the resignations of company leaders because of allegations the company used bribery to expand in Mexico and lied to cover it up. Venanzi Luna’s petition on change.org now has over 13,000 signatures. She’s asking for Wal-mart CEO Mike Duke and Chairman Rob Walton to step down and for an investigation to be launched.
Luna, a department manager and company shareholder, is quoted as saying: “While I am working hard, I’m hearing that they’re risking our company by lying and cheating,” she says. “No one, no matter how rich and powerful they are, should get away with bribery.”
The alleged scandal was detailed in a New York Times report available here.
