CREDO Mobilize
Tell Walmart: Pay workers $15 an hour with consistent, full-time hours

Dear 5849376,

My name is Jaffet Alamilla. I work as an overnight stocker at a Walmart in Riverside, California. I love my job at Walmart but I still struggle to provide for my family on Walmart pay.

Following years of huge worker protests and massive strikes, I was so excited when Walmart finally agreed to a raise for all of its store associates earlier this year. That excitement didn't stick once I realized they were only raising base pay to $10 an hour, and even less for long term associates. Ten dollars an hour is better than what most associates were getting but it's still not enough to put food on the table for my family.

That's why I started my own campaign on, which allows activists to start their own petitions. My petition, which is to Walmart CEO Doug McMillon, says the following:

Walmart is one of the richest corporations in the world, yet its employees still don't earn enough in wages or work enough hours to survive. Raise worker pay to $15 per hour and provide workers with access to full-time, consistent hours.

Tell Walmart CEO Doug McMillon: Pay workers $15 an hour with consistent, full-time hours. Click here to sign the petition.

As a father of five, nothing in the world is more important to me than my kids. In fact, I work overnights just so I can try and spend more time with them during the day. But if it weren't for the breakfasts and lunches that their schools provide, I honestly don't know how my children would get three meals a day.

I can't imagine why a company where the CEO makes over $8,500 per hour refuses to change things and instead, seeks to keep people like me in such hard situations. It's time for Walmart to publicly commit to paying a decent wage.

Our country is at a crossroads. Although our economy has started to improve – especially for those on Wall Street – many of us are still left without jobs or scrambling to survive.

It's time for Walmart to publicly commit to pay all of its workers $15 per hour with consistent, full-time hours. If you sign my petition, you can send Walmart a message that you're with us in our fight.

Will you join me and add your name to my petition to Walmart CEO Doug McMillon to demand that Walmart pay workers $15 an hour with access to consistent, full-time hours?

Thank you for your support,

Jaffet Alamilla
