Hundreds of protesters picketed outside the home of Alice Walton, the billionaire daughter of Walmart’s founder.
A total of 26 protesters were arrested when they blocked Park Avenue in the upscale New York neighborhood where Walton’s home is located. Another 16 were arrested in a similar protest outside a Walmart office in Washington, D.C.
The New York protesters carried signs that said “The Waltons are robbing America” and chanted “What do we want: Respect. When do we want it: Now.”
